Yesterday evening (12/17), company 59 was dispatched to PA 283 for a two vehicle accident with injuries. Rescue 59 & Engine 59-1 were out within a minute of dispatch. The units were enroute when Dauphin County Commucations alerted units of a firefighter from florida on scene reporting confinment of a single pateint. Engine 59-1 and Rescue 59 arrived on location with a two vehicle accident with one in the roadway and the other over the embankment with crews confirming the confinement report. Rescue 59 took the vehicle in the roadway with confinement, removing the drivers door and a half roof removal to gain access to the patient. The second vehicle over the embankment was secured and the signle pateint was taken to a awaiting EMS unit for evaluation. Once the patient was removed, command marked extrication of the single patient and the incident was turned over to the state police. The units provided lighting for the officers until the vehicles could be removed off the roadway. Debris was removed from the roadway with command placing the box in service after a hour and half operation.
