On the cold and frigid Sunday afternoon of January 26, 2014 at 1453 hours Keystone Valley Fire Department was dispatched to Route 372 and Route 10 for an auto accident.

Ambulance 8 along with Battalion 44 were in the area and could not locate the accident. Shortly after Battalion 44 advised CCFR he was flagged down for an reported accident three (3) miles south on Route 10.

Ambulance 8 continued that direction along with Battalion 44. On-scene they found a two (2) vehicle accident with entrapment.

KVFD was re-dispatched along with Westwood for one ambulance and Medic 93 to Route 10 in front of Griest Auction for an Accident w/ Entrapment.

Deputy 8 (Gathercole) arrived on-scene and assumed the “Route 10” Command.

Rescue 8 made the response along with Tac 8. Rescue 8 advised they could use an additional manpower so Route 10 Command advised CCFR to dispatch Cochranville for Rescue 27 along with fire police from 8-27-44. Fire police were tasked with shutting Route 10 down on both ends of the accident scene.

The occupant of one vehicle was entrapped on the passenger-side of one of the vehicle. Upon arrival of Rescue 8, Rescue 8 went into service with a full extrication. Tac 8 arrived on-scene with its crew assisting Rescue 8.
Cochranville Rescue 27 arrived on-scene and was advised to also go into service assisting KVFD on the extrication.

The patient was extricated at 1521 hours and loaded into Ambulance 8. Ambulance 8 went enroute to Christiana Hospital with both Medic 93-1, and Medic 93-4.

Westwood EMS handled a refusal and was released covering the Station 8 District and 44 Local.

The incident was cleared at 1626 hours with all units including fire police released. Route 10 was re-opened.
