2 MVA's IN SAME LOCATION
11/23-24/13 - Co. 6, Engine 7-1 and Medic 53 were dispatched late Saturday night for an MVA with one overturned on Carlisle Rd at Yellow Hill Rd. Units arrived to find one vehicle on its roof in the roadway, with patients to be found. The box was placed in service with fire police remaining.
In the early morning hours on Sunday morning, the same assignment was dropped for the same location for an MVA with ejection and wires down. With units enroute, Adams advised that the vehicle also struck a gas meter, and there was an odor of gas in the area; they also advised that the caller stated they had the patients inside their residence at the scene. Rescue 6, 6A and Medic 53 arrived simultaneously, confirming the info. EMS units entered the residence to assess the patients, with Rescue 6's crew assessing hazards around the vehicle. Engine 7-1 was assigned to investigate and mitigate the gas leak, and Engine 6-2 took a blocking position at the top of the hill and sent its crew forward to assist with EMS. Medic 53 then requested 2 additional BLS, 1 additional ALS and airmedical, bringing 6A1, 1A, Cumberland MICU 240 and LifeLion 3. The LZ was set up north of the scene with Engine 7-1 handling, but then moved to Biglerville High School with Engine 5-1 dispatched to handle. Upon MICU 240's arrival, they requested another helicopter, bringing LifeLion 1, with Engine 7-1 handling the LZ at the original LZ location. The box was then placed in service with fire police remaining.
