MVA with Entrapment – Main Street - December 31, 2006

Company’s 1 & 3 work a three car motor vehicle crash with 1 car on it’s roof with person trapped in it and another car on fire. The lighting and tool configuration on Rescue 1 makes working such incidents quicker, safer, and less confusing. Firefighters can concentrate on working with medical personnel and removing the vehicle from around the patient in an extremely efficient manner. This equates to less pain and suffering for the person trapped, whose life is threatened not only by injuries he/she may have sustained in the accident, but also by being trapped in such a damaged vehicle with leaking fuel and compromised electrical systems.
