Around 1:15 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, Station 47 and surrounding companies were dispatched for a report of a car accident with people trapped in the area of Baldwin Mill Road and Sweet Air Road. Jacksonville’s Engine 473 and IV 475 were the first to arrive and find a sedan that had run over the guardrail, off of the road, and struck a tree on the hill near the Harford County line. The single occupant was quickly assessed as a Priority 2 patient trapped inside the unstable car. Crews from Jacksonville and Kingsville worked together to stabilize the vehicle using chains and cribbing. A window was then removed and the patient was lowered down the hill and immobilized. She was transported to a local trauma center with non-life threatening injuries. The remainder of units initially dispatched were placed in service prior to their arrival.

Around 6:15 Monday morning, Jacksonville was alerted to a report of a car accident with injuries in the area of Jarrettsville Pike and Manor Road. Engine 473 responded and arrived minutes later to find a pickup truck that had struck two vehicles in the oncoming lane. All three cars had serious damage. One patient with minor injuries from the accident was handled by M17. A tractor trailer hauling gasoline tried to squeeze by the scene prior to arrival of the fire department and ran off the road, leaving it stuck in the mud and leaning to one side. E473 remained on the scene over two hours awaiting a wrecker to safely move the tanker truck.

At 1024 hours on Saturday, Long Green, Jacksonville, and surrounding stations were dispatched to an auto accident with reports of people trapped near the intersection of Dance Mill Road and Longmoor Circle.

The remainder of the rescue box was then placed in service. Due to the patients condition Trooper 1 was called to fly the individual to the trauma center. Within 30 minutes of being dispatched on the call the patient was extricated, stabilized, packaged and in the air.
