On Saturday January 17th, 2015 at 3 pm Squad 27 was on the road and came across a MVC, directly in front of 575 Easton Avenue. Lt. Conklin called out to County Dispatch and advised his crew would be assisting EMS with patient care, as well as cleanup of fluids on the ground.
After EMS evaluated the patient, they decided to have the FD remove the driver side door, in order to extricate the patient. District #3 was re-toned to have Rescue 25 respond to the scene. Car 27 arrived and assumed Command.
Chief Krushinski had the crew from Squad 27 pull a 1 inch and 3/4 hand line and the crew from Rescue 25 and Engine 278 perform the Extrication. The driver was quickly taken out of the vehicle, without incident. All Fire Units cleared in approximately 30 minutes. Units on scene were Car 27, Car 272, Car 273, Squad 27, Engine 278, Car 25, Car 252, Rescue 25 and Tac 25.
