�        �We have multiple people trapped. We�re just dragging them out, one by one.�

�        �We�ve got some injured all over Kulas Road wandering around.We need some help up here.�

�        �Let�s get all the injured escorted away from the building, all officers, OK? The rescues (rescue vehicles) are coming in.  Let�s get everybody else back. ... Let�s get everybody back across Cowesett (Avenue).�

�        �Headquarters to C-11. Do you need additional nurses up there?� Response: �We�re going to be transporting multiple people to the hospital. They�ll be needed at the hospital.�

�        �(Inaudible) wants you to call the ME�s (medical examiner�s) office and advise them that we have a mass casualty incident here.  They�re going to have to institute some kind of a plan to get down here.�

�        �We need you to call the Red Cross. We�ve got a major incident here. We may have as many as 25 casualties here. ... Why don�t you give them a call and let them know what we�ve got and see if they can mobilize something.�

�        �We are fully engulfed, fully engulfed building. We have people on fire inside.�

�        �All our guys are OK. It seems like all the firemen are OK. But they haven�t started moving the rubble yet.�

�        �If anyone�s calling looking for victim information we�re in the Cowesett Inn and we�re taking names from people ... who they�re looking for or whatever, who was in the club.�

�        �This is Attorney General Mike Stone. ... I�ve been watching the news. Obviously it looks like there might be some criminality here,� Stone said to a police captain.
