“Last evening at 5:30 pm Ladder 4, Engine 9, Unit 1 & 2 responded to a motor vehicle accident at Irvington and Church Streets.

One vehicle rolled on its side with a male driver pinned between cab and ground. Crews used the Hurst eDraulic spreaders and the winch on Command Unit 1 to raise the vehicle off of the victim. Cribbing was simultaneously placed underneath the truck for stabilization.

Both District Chief command units which were placed in service in 2019 and 2020 are equipped with five ton winches for rescue operations.”
