One Confined By Fallen Tree
At 1400hrs, strong storms started moving through the Harrisburg area with wind and heavy rain. Engine 59-1 and Rescue 59 were dispatched for a tree down on vehicles in a parking lot in the 700 blk of SpringGarden Drive. As updates started to come in of an occupied vehicle struck by a tree, command added Engine 55 and Rescue 88 to the box. R59 arrived with a large tree on three vehicles with one female occupant confined. The crews worked quickly with chainsaws and with assistance of the Lower Swatara Township road crew’s backhoe to remove the tree to free the occupant. Great work by all involved!
