I haven't had anything really interesting lately. The calls I've run have been your average, boring, sick person and/or buttaches.
I did respond to an apartment fire a couple of weeks ago. We took care of shutting off the gas supplies, then sat around watching for weakness in the firewall. It was a hell of a fire overall, but it was a primarily defensive operation. 2 aerials were set up and put in service. Once the majority of the fire was out, crews took handlines into the safer areas to start overhaul.
We were released from the scene shortly before shift change. I'm sure the other shift just loved getting to roll and reload all that hose.
