Single Vehicle MVC in 17000 Block of Old Mansfield Road

IMG_2786CH411, R415, G412, G414 were dispatched at 1:17pm on Wednesday to the 17000 block of Old Mansfield Road on the report of a single vehicle crash with a male trapped underneath the vehicle. Due to the nature of the call, EMS requested the first available medical helicopter to respond to the scene.

Upon arrival to the scene, crews found a full-size pickup truck on its side in a field west of the roadway. The patient had self-extricated from under the truck. C411 and the crew of R415 assisted in patient care and an additional helicopter was requested to the scene for a second patient. Other incoming FCFD crews assisted with landing zone setup in the field nearby, and assisted with patient care/transport to the helicopters. A medic from the Mount Vernon Fire Department was requested to transport a third patient.

All FCFD crews were back in quarters by 2:57pm. A total of 8 FCFD personnel responded to the scene

Firefighters train on single-lane tank system

Firefighters and cadets met on station for their regular training last night. Training was led by FF Heath Kempton who went over operations with our single lane tank and the concepts of shuttling water. Asst. Chief Dwayne Canter instructed on the draft operations with R415 and familiarized the group with the differences in using the air-primer system that it uses.
