Mutual Aid Rescue to Mahwah
Yesterday at 1:48 PM, Rescue 3 and Chief 330 were requested to assist Mahwah Fire Department on Route 287 North at Mile Marker 63.7 for a motor vehicle accident with multiple injuries and entrapment. Rescue 3 arrived on scene to find Mahwah units working to extricate the driver of an SUV who was entrapped in the drivers seat. Crews immediately went to work assisting Mahwah with removing the roof and disconnecting the power to the vehicle by disconnecting the battery. The patient was rapidly extricated, packaged and removed to Hackensack Air 1 which was standing by next to the accident. The patient was transported to a local Trauma Center. Great job to all units operating on scene.
