Arona Borough Crash With Extrication


Station 10 and 61 with our combined response plan were dispatched to Main St. Arona Borough, near Hill Street for the Vehicle Crash with reported entrapment. Units arrived to find a single vehicle that had collided with a telephone pole then came to a rest on its side, trapping its lone occupant. Rescue 10 arrived and started stabilization then extrication, with Rescue 61 arriving to provide lights and hands to the extrication. Engine 10 and Squad 61 completed the traffic assignment while sending their crews forward. Firefighters partially removed the roof of the vehicle to safely remove the patient. Command marked extrication complete at about the 20 minute mark and firefighters turned the patient over to EMS.


Special Thanks to Strawpump Station 2 for handling the Cover Assignment while we were tied up on this crash.
