Trapped Driver and Passenger Freed from Motor Vehicle in Delaware

Trapped Driver and Passenger Freed from Motor Vehicle in Delaware

Three years after receiving their granted extrication equipment, Citizens’ Hose Company #1 in Smyrna, Delaware was dispatched to a motor vehicle accident. When they arrived, they found a car in the trees with the driver and passenger trapped inside. The battery-operated tools allowed them to maneuver around the trees, freeing both individuals before they were transported to the local trauma center for treatment and recovery.

“The equipment provided by the Foundation was instrumental in this response. The equipment allowed us to work faster with fewer crew members needed. We have used this donated equipment several times and are incredibly grateful for these lifesaving tools.” – Mark Blair, Firefighter, Citizens’ Hose Company
