Units Respond to Accident with Entrapment on Bottom Road (Rescue Box 38-1)

January 20th, 2009

At approximately 1530 hours, Jacksonville’s Engine 473 was dispatched along with units from Long Green and the surrounding area for a report of a car accident with people trapped on Bottom Road near Church Lane. Squad 483 was the first arriving unit. Command was established and reported a single vehicle that had collided with a telephone pole. A total of four patients were in the vehicle; three of whom were still trapped. Additional medic units and a medevac helicopter were requested. BGE was also requested due to the instability of the pole. Crews quickly extricated and packaged three of the patients while other personnel worked to extricate the trapped passenger. At one point, the Go-Team from Shock Trauma was requested due to the extent of the entrapment. Approximately 45 minutes after initial dispatch, the patient was freed and the Go Team was cancelled. Jacksonville’s Engine 473 handled the helicopter landing site.
