On Thursday, May 5, 2022, Engine 76 and Battalion 6 responded to a call for service involving a bear who had found its way onto the back lot of Six Flags Magic Mountain and had gotten stuck between two Conex trailers.

The crew was quickly joined by Heavy Rescue 103, USAR 136, California Fish and Game, and the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control. They worked diligently and patiently for the next several hours to free the bear.

USAR 136 was successful in utilizing its equipment to move one of the trailers to gain better access to the bear once it had been sedated.

The bear was then packaged for transport, so that it could be safely relocated by personnel from Fish and Game.
