Brookline Responds to Multi-Vehicle Accident
On February 6, 2015, Company 35 along with Rescue 56 (Manoa), and Squad 38 (Oakmont) was alerted to the area of Township Line & Farwood roads for the accident with entrapment. 35-9 (Chief Viola) arrived with a two vehicle accident, one up the embankment. The driver of one vehicle was uninjured, but the vehicle up the embankment had two injuries and limited access. Chief Viola established the command, and had crews stabilize the vehicle. Squad 38, and the crew from Engine 35 stabilized the vehicle as the crew from Rescue 56 "popped" the door with the jaws of life. Medics 108-7 and 108-7a (PennSTAR Medics) transported the occupants to local hospitals. Check out some of the phonos on our Facebook page.
