MFD Handles Rollover with Two Trapped on Route 17K

At 1408 hours on January 2nd, MFD was dispatched to a rollover auto accident with entrapment on Route 17K near the Winding Hills Golf Course. Car 1 (Pressler) arrived on scene to find one vehicle on its side with two occupants trapped inside. Rescue 222 and Engine 219 arrived shortly thereafter and began to stabilize the vehicle and prepare to extricate. Once the vehicle was stabilized, crews removed the front windshield and roof to gain access to the patients. Both patients were extricated from the vehicle within a half hour and transported to local hospitals. While operating at this call, Maybrook FD stood-by MFD’s station with one engine and Coldenham FD stood by their own quarters with a rescue to cover any other alarm that may have occurred.
