Allamuchy FD and Allamuchy-Green First Aid Squad recently conducted a joint drill involving heavy entrapments and MCI scenarios. Set up as a timed roll-in response, first due units sized up the scene, rescue assessed and tagged patients, and fire extricated accordingly.
Two scenarios included two cars each, with critically injured patients pinned under the dash, critically injured patients ejected from the vehicles, patients found under the vehicles, and patients who are able to walk away on their own.
The drill scenarios brought the two departments together to leverage resources from one another, and learn to work together in a real life staged situation.
