Car vs Farm Equipment Flies One to CER
Friday, July 18, 2014 

In the early morning hours, Station 51, KM7, KM5, and Trooper 4 were dispatched for a MVC with a report of a subject trapped. Kent Center advised of a car under a planter (farm machinery) with subject trapped inside. Upon arrival, command (A/C Norris) found a single 4 door sedan type vehicle under a planter attached a John Deere tractor, with the occupant still inside. Occupant of the tractor was out and walking around, complained of no injury. Both vehicles took up the entire roadway. The left dual wheel of the tractor was off of the ground approx 2 ft with portion of the planter resting on the hood of the car. One of the wheels of the planter had gone through the driver side windshield and was resting on the patient's left leg/pelvis, pinning the patient in the seat. Patient was alert and oriented x 4 and instructed to remain still. Driver side door was lodged.


FF/EMT arrived POV and made access to the patient through the rear passenger door. Crews from Engine 51-3 A/C Morris w/5) stabilized the car and prepped the vehicle for extrication. 50' of 1 3/4 handline was pulled. 51-6 (Chief Connors w/ 4) made access from the opposite direction. Crew from 51-6 stabilized the planter and tractor using large rescsue struts and farm jacks. Command requested an additional rescue company to assist. Rescue 56-3 (Marydel) made the response (A/C Grygo w/ 5). LZ for the trooper medic was set up at the fire house. BLS and ALS continued patient care while fire department extricated.


Crews worked together utilizing high and medium pressure air bags to lift the tractor approximately one foot and stabilized in place. The roof was removed from the vehicle, cutting around the wheel. Crew lifted the tractor another couple of inches. The wheel had lifted approximately an inch off of the patient's lap. 32" Spreader was placed on the dash of the car and lifted the planter wheel enough to pull the patient out. Crews placed a backboard at the back of the patient and lifted him up and out of the vehicle. Command reported extrication completed at 06:20 with a total extrication time of 40 minutes. Scene was placed under control.

Hartly Landmark is Demolished
Thursday, July 17, 2014 
The company recently decided to have the home that was on the firehouse property removed to make room for future plans for a parking lot. The home was donated to the firehouse after the previous occupant moved some years ago. The home doubled as a weight room as well as a small training area that we used to teach the younger members how to search an area and advance hand lines. Although most were happy to have the house removed, all will remember the "Holland House"!
