The Gates (NY) Fire District responded with Gates EMS Paramedics to the LiftLine bus company on Trabold Road last Wednesday afternoon for a report of a man unconscious on the roof.

Arriving units found a roofing contractor worker with a medical problem that required removal from the two-story structure.

The rescue came on a day with both of the district’s quints out of service, requiring a high-angle rope operation be deployed.
