An Early Morning
Date: 05.16.2015

Just after 5:00 AM this morning, the vehicle rescue assignment went out for 1 Fairview Road in the Penn Valley section of Lower Merion alerting Engine 26, Rescue 22 and Rescue 21. County dispatch was receiving multiple reports of one vehicle off the roadway and overturned with one subject inside. As members responded to the stations, LMPD updated the location to be on Conshohocken State Road between Fairview and Mill Creek. Units arrived to find a van off the roadway on its side with one subject confined in the vehicle. The difficulty with the incident was that the van had come to a stop in a slightly wooded area off State Road which had a somewhat steep decline towards Mill Creek Road. Engine 26 deployed a hand line for fire protection and crews from Rescues 22 & 21 worked together to stabilize the vehicle and extract the patient. Once free, the individual was packaged and transported to Penn Presbyterian's trauma center for evaluation. Another great showing of teamwork from LMFD.
