Residential Rescue in London Britain
Email Email Print Print RSS RSS Facebook Google+ Twitter

By Secretary Bill Wohl
December 25, 2018

The sounds of sirens filled the air in the southern part of the Avon Grove area on Christmas afternoon, as the West Grove Fire Company was dispatched to a residential rescue. WGFC units were advised that a subject had fallen through the ceiling above the garage at a home on Woodhaven Drive, a sub-division off of Elbow Lane at the southern edge of London Britain Township.

WGFC Ambulance 22-1 arrived on the scene just ahead of Engine 22-3. Responders found a man who had fallen through the drywall ceiling between the rafters, and had a possible arm injury. After falling, the subject was wedged between two rafters, with one leg dangling down into the garage above a garage door track. A section of ceiling and a fluorescent light fixture were dangling from the damaged ceiling.

Also arriving were Chief 22 (who assumed command), along with Rescue 22, Ladder 22, Brush 22, and Ambulance 22-2. EMTs and Firefighters made access to the attic area, and worked to examine and package the patient for removal. After considering the use of a stokes basket to lower the subject, it was determined the patient could be assisted down the ladder. The firefighters assisted the subject down the ladder to a waiting ambulance stretcher for transport to the hospital.

WGFC units were on scene approximately 45 minutes.

Units: Ambulance 22-1 and 22-2, Engine 22-3, Rescue 22, Ladder 22, Brush 22
