Fire Danger Today:


MVA with Entrapment
October 30, 2010
A report of an MVA with people trapped brought Meredith crews to the junction of Daniel Webster Highway and Parade Road at 17:28 today. The crash occurred within the roundabout at this location.

14C2 arrived on scene and reported two vehicles were involved and and each vehicle had a person trapped.

The occupant of one vehicle sustained injuries that required removal of the roof to extricate. Crews from 14 Engine 1 and 14 Engine 2 worked opposite sides of the vehicle simultaneously with hydraulic tools and made quick work of the task.

Personnel from 14 Rescue worked to contain vehicle fluids and isolate vehicle power as air bag deployment did not occur in the T-Bone type collision.
