November 18, 2008- At 16:18 Station 1 was dispatched for Rescue 727 to assist District 34 (Friedensburg and Summit Station) as well as 2 Rescue companies from Berks County on a motor vehicle accident with entrapment near the Schuylkill/Berks County line.
As District 34 command arrived on scene they noticed the heavy entrapment and decided to roll the Rescue out of Schuylkill Haven right away. It took only a matter of minutes, even in poor road conditions for BOTH COUNTIES to work together and get the patients extricated.
Do to the icy road conditions, and after Station 1 was released from the scene, Command 34 asked to have Squad 726, equipped with rescue tools to stand by in Summit Station Firehouse in the event of another crash in the coverage area. Thankfully, no more accidents developed and all Schuylkill Haven units were back in the borough in 2.5 hours. **MLK PHOTOS**
