Busy Day for BVFD units
Around 1600 hours on February 22nd, Company 15 units were alerted to the area of Columbia Pike and Musgrove Rd for the reported personal injury collision. Units were updated enroute that the incident would be closer to Columbia Pike and Fairland Rd and reports were received of two patients trapped. Units arrived to find a multiple vehicle collision with multiple patients, and two patients trapped in one of the vehicles. RS715 went to work removing two doors to extricate the patients while PE715 and additional EMS units worked to triage and transport the additional patients. C715 had the command.
Shortly after clearing the collision Co. 15 and surrounding units were alerted to 4320 Valley Stream Ave in the first due for the reported house fire. C715 arrived on scene reporting a two story, single family home with smoke showing from the front door and established command. Units investigated to find a fire on the deck in the rear of the structure. PE715 went to work extinguishing the fire, while RS715 performed searches and controlled utilities, and T715 laddered the structure.
