Allamuchy Fire Extricates One from RT80 MVA

June 10, 2020 - At around 11:45am, Allamuchy Fire and Allamuchy-Green First Aid Squad was dispatched for a motor vehicle accident on Rt 80 with possible entrapment. While enroute, 91 Fire was updated that it was an MVA involving a Tractor Trailer and the vehicle was under it with the patient heavily entrapped. With the update, Fire Chief 91-60 requested mutual aid from Budd Lake Fire and Green Fire for additional manpower, as well as a Heavy Wrecker to begin responding.

As 91-60 arrived, he confirmed the heavily entrapped patient was under a fully loaded TT, and advised Heavy Rescue 91-75 of the scenario. Atlantic Air One was also requested to fly, with the landing zone being on the highway in front of the crash scene.

The crew from 91-75 arrived moments after 91-60 and immediately grabbed the Paratech Rescue Struts and Hydrofusions to begin stabilizing the vehicles and prepare to lift the TT. 91-63 arrived minutes later and was assigned to assist 91-75 in setting up the struts and fusions. 91-61 arrived moments later who helped set up the extrication equipment and begin extrication.

As the TT was lifted 8", Asst Chief 91-70 gave the clear that the TT was off the vehicle, which at that time, it was pulled out from under. 91 Fire then completed the extrication with the sidewall of the vehicle being removed, followed by a dash lift to free the patient.

Within 30minutes of arrival, the patient was removed and handed over the 95 Rescue, Atlantic ALS, and AirOne Paramedics who were ready to airlift the patient.

Departments assisting Allamuchy Fire on scene included Budd Lake Fire, Green Twp Fire, Allamuchy-Green First Aid Squad, Atlantic Ambulance Corp, Atlantic Air One, and NJSP. Route 80 was reopened at around 2pm.
