One Trapped on Chambersburg Road

Around 0800 this morning, Company 27 was alerted for the auto accident with one trapped in the 6800 blk of Chambersburg Rd (27-7 Box).  Engine-Tanker, Brush and Chief 27 responded with 7.  27 units arrived to find EMS on the scene with one auto on its roof and one patient trapped.  Engine-Tanker 27 deployed its Holmatro Cutters, Spreaders and Ram to extricate the patient.  ET 27 also placed a hose line in service due to a fuel leak from the vehicle.  Squad 7 (Fayetteville) assisted with the extrication.  After removing 2 doors, the “B” post, the passenger seat / center console and pushing the roof off the patient, the extrication was complete.  Due to the weather conditions, EMS transported the patient via ground.  This is another great example of local fire departments working together with limited daytime manpower.  Engine 4-1 (Cashtown) had been dispatched for a landing zone and later responded to the scene because no air medical being available to fly.  Franklin Rescue-Squad 41 (Franklins) had filled the box and was returned prior to arrival.

September Drill Night

Last Night was BVFD’s Rescue Review Training.  Engine Tanker, Engine and Special Unit 27 with 14 Volunteers loaded up and went to Beechers Auto Salvage for a hands on review.  After a short review period on the rescue struts and holmatro tools, Members were broken into crews and went to task.  The Drill involved a vehicle on its roof, one on its side and a van on its wheels.   Crews were mixed with newer and more experianced Members.  BVFD would like to Thank Beechers Auto Salvage for their on-going Support.  #BVFD27
