At 0016 hours, this date, Engine 137 and Ambulance 58B1 were dispatched on a dual response with Fairview FD (Engine 175) to the Sprain Brook Parkway Northbound on the entrance ramp to Route 287 Westbound for a serious motor vehicle accident, rollover with entrapment.
E175 arrived first due, stabilizing the vehicle, stretching a precautionary line and forcing the driver’s door open with their E-hydraulic spreaders.
E137 and 58B1 arrived shortly after, removing the patient from the vehicle and transporting the critically injured driver, with Greenburgh Medic onboard, to Westchester Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
This incident was a fine example of teamwork between the two departments involved and Greenburgh EMS, providing prompt patient care and transport to the hospital.
Our thanks to Fairview FD E175 personnel and Greenburgh EMS for a job well done.
