Squad Cover and MVC with Entrapment
Thursday, August 26, 2021

Today, Squad 18 and Ladder 28 (Wilmington Manor Fire Company) were transferred to the MOT Area of New Castle County to cover while they operated at a Working House Fire. In order to maintain coverage to the greater New Castle Area, the remaining crew partnered with the on duty staff at Minquadale Fire Company, Station 22 to maintain a Fire Suppression crew in New Castle.
While returning from the cover up, Squad 18 responded to assist Delaware City Volunteer Fire Company, No. 1, Inc., Station 15 on a Motor Vehicle Accident into a structure. While enroute, Squad 18 was advised of Possible Entrapment. Squad 18 arrived and found a head-on collision with heavy entrapment. The crew applied a Tourniquet, and extricated the patient in 12 minutes after arriving. The crew assisted for 45 minutes securing the scene.
While Squad 18 was at the first accident, Engine 18 (combined Station 22 and Station 18 firefighters) was dispatched to Interstate 495 at Rodgers Road for a Motor Vehicle Accident with Entrapment. The crews operated securing the scene and assisting patients. A total of 3 patients were treated, and the crews operated for over half an hour and Chief 22 had command.
Units remained busy throughout the day, answering calls in a 105 degree heat index.
