Special Operations Assist

Thursday, July 2, 2015

The Kent County Special Operations Team (based in Cheswold, Hartly, and Leipsic) was alerted to assist the Citizens Hose Company of Smryna on an accident invovling a large vehicle.  The driver was trapped in the cab and his leg was pinned under the vehicle.  When our units arrived, crews from Smyrna had accessed the patient and had begun efforts to lift the vehicle off of the patient's leg.  We utilized our heavy lifting air bags and hydraulic struts to help them lift and shore the cab.  The next step was to get people under the lifted vehicle to free the victim's leg.  The patient was removed and transported to a trauma center by the state police helicopter.

DNREC was on the scene to manage the large diesel spill.

McKinney's Tow Service also responded with two large wreckers to help with lifting and stabilization.

Captain Rutledge from Citizens Hose had command.

Special Ops Units on the response:  43-1 (Cheswold), 51-7 and 51-10 (Hartly), Truck & Trailer 53 (Leipsic)
