Early Monday afternoon, Medic 475 was alerted for an injured subject in the area of the Dulaney Valley Road bridge. Upon responding, M475 requested a 4x4 assist due to the patient being located on one of the fire trails somewhere in the woods with a broken ankle. Jacksonville’s Brush 472 and Utility 477 then responded to what was originally a 38-18 box. Minutes later, additional information from the caller reported that they might be closer to Pot Spring Road in a 17-15 box. At that time, units from the Texas fire station also responded. Units converged near the Gate Ridge development and took a total of four vehicles into the woods to search for the patient. He was eventually located, stabilized, and removed from the woods via Utility 477.
