WILTON, NY - On February 22nd, Wilton EMS and Wilton Fire were dispatched to Ruggles Road for a vehicle that had fallen on a subject. Wilton's Assistant Chief requested Maple Avenue Fire to respond for the entrapment assist. EMS units were first on scene confirming one patient pinned under the vehicle. The first Wilton and Maple Avenue units arrived and quickly assessed the situation. The officer in charge of the extrication decided a rapid removal was necessary to prevent further injury to the subject. Communicating with EMS the entire time, crews worked together to use a Holmatro Spreader to lift the rear end of the vehicle while capturing progress with cribbing. The continued partnership with these three agencies resulted in a successful and efficient extrication.
