BUSY FRIDAY FOR PVFC VOLUNTEERS

     

Friday, February 1, 2013 As some snow settled in to the Pikesville area on Friday morning, February 1, the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company crews began a busy day of responding to emergency calls. Shortly after 630 am, PVFC Squad 322 and Tower 323 were alerted for the report of a vehicle accident with rescue on Greenspring Avenue at Lightfoot Drive (Box 2-17). First arriving units found a two-vehicle collision with the driver trapped in one of the vehicles. Captain Allenbaugh of BCoFD Engine 2 assumed command as crews from the Tower & Squad stabilized the car and removed the driver's door to gain access to the patient. BCoFD Medic 14 transported the patient to a local hospital. PVFC units also responded to four more crashes, two of which were reported with entrapment. Box 2-61 was originally dispatched as a 1050 PI with Engine 2, Medic 2, and Engine 3, but was quickly updated with multiple calls advising the vehicle rolled over and there were multiple people trapped. Squad 322 & Tower 323 and Engine 2 arrived to find a single vehicle that hit the guardrail with six patients inside including two pediatrics. With no one trapped but dealing with multiple injuries, Engine 2 requested the Squad to continue as well as a total of 4 medic units, the Battalion Chief, and MSP Trooper 6 for medevac transport of two of the patients. The Squad remained on the scene assisting with patient care for 45 minutes.
