This afternoon, Company 63 was dispatched with Witmer Fire Protective Association, Ronks Fire Company, and Lancaster EMS to Greenfield Road and Route 30W Exit Ramp for a Vehicle Accident with reported entrapment.
Chief 62 was the first arriving to find 2 vehicles at the top of the exit ramp with one patient trapped in a sedan, that had come to rest against a guard rail. Chief 62 then established the incident command.
Engine 63-1 arrived to put hydraulic rescue tools in service to remove the passenger side of the vehicle, so EMS could access the patient. Upon the arrival of Rescue 48, the vehicle was pulled forward, allowing access to the drivers side of the vehicle. The drivers door was then removed to allow access to the driver.
Engine 62-1 and Rescue 48 also assisted with other various tasks.
Fire Police Officers from 62, 63, and 41 directed traffic around the scene while crew members worked to free the trapped driver who had minor injuries.
