Emergency crews from the Ramona Fire Department/Cal Fire and Barona Fire Department provide medical aid to a man working on the roof  above K D's Donuts and Niko's Greek Cafe  in the Albertsons center at Main and 14th Streets around noon on Wednesday. The man, who worked for a roofing company, was brought down by using Barona's ladder truck and transported to Pomerado Hospital, said Capt. Don Davis of the Ramona Fire Department.

"Due to the unstableness of the patient, we used the truck from Barona to take him down safely," Davis said.

According to the captain, Ramona does not have a ladder truck."We don't run enough calls to warrant a truck like that," he said.

Davis said he could not disclose the nature of the medical emergency, due to HIPAA laws, and no information was available about the roofing company employee.
