USAR13 called into Cecil Co Md.
Thursday, January 17, 2019

Yesterday at just before 12:30pm, New Castle Co station 7,8,9&10 (Aetna Hose and Hook & Ladder) was dispatched to assist Singerly Fire Company in Cecil County Md. for this MVC on I-95 involving a overturned tractor trailer with the driver trapped under the cab portion of the truck. Crews were faced with this extremely challenging technical rescue requiring extended operation. Requests were made to Christiana’s Rescue-Engine 12, Wilmington Squad 4 and our USAR. USAR-13 responses within moments, staffed with 4 with additional technical rescue technicians responding directly to the scene. Crews worked together for almost 90 minutes to free the trapped driver. The driver was flown to the shock Trauma unit in Maryland in stable condition by Maryland State Police, Aviation Command. Photos courtesy of Aetna Fire Company photographer Dave Wilson.
