ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Clark County Fire Chief Greg Cassell said the fire department responded to the Las Vegas shooting in 'less than five seconds.' "We sat down with all the area firefighters years ago and said we are going to integrate with the police department to get into people in hostile situations and control their bleeding and control their airwaves to save lives," Cassell said at a news conference on Thursday. "Because we've learned the lessons from Columbine, we've learned the lessons from Aurora and we as an industry have to move forward and Clark County Fire and southern Nevada fire departments led that for the entire nation, " Cassell said. Fifty eight people were killed and around 489 others were injured Sunday night when Stephen Paddock strafed an outdoor concert with gunfire from a 32nd-floor hotel suite on the Las Vegas Strip. He then killed himself.
