Vehicle Accident with Rescue, 5th and Chesnut Sts, West Reading Boro
Wed, May 1st, 2019 5:30:00 am
Just before dawn on Saturday April 27, TSFRS Rescue 85 was dispatched to the intersection of 5th and Chesnut Sts in West Reading to assist West Reading Company 64 on a vehicle accident with entrapment. Capt 64 arrived and reported four vehicles involved, with multiple injuries and one person entrapped. Capt 64 requested that R85 prepare for a roof removal on arrival.

R85 under Capt Connor arrived and found one entrapped occupant of a T-boned vehicle partially ejected with life threatening injuries. Personnel used their hydraulic equipment and cribbing to free the patient. R85s crew also removed front driver's side door and popped rear driver's side door to assist with extrication onto the EMS litter. One R85 firefighter was requested by EMS to drive Medic 652-1 top RHMC trauma bay.

The remaining crew from R85 secured equipment and assisted with securing R64's equipment. Capt 64 then released R85 to retrieve their firefighter at the hospital.
