3/18/17: MVC at Chaplin Road and Exit 155

3/18/17: Company 20 was dispatched to a two vehicle side impact collision on Chaplin Road and the southbound 155 mile marker intersection. Squad 203 and Medic 29 responded to the incident along with MonEMS 74 and 76 and West Virginia State Police. Upon arrival crews found a two vehicle side impact collision with moderate damage to the vehicles and occupants still in the vehicles. No extrication was needed to access patients and so crews from all responding agencies proceeded to set up traffic control, stabilize and package three patients for transport, provide scene shielding/safety, and mitigate fluids leaking onto the roadway. After PD and EMS cleared from scene Squad 203 continued providing traffic control and scene safety/shielding until the cars could be removed from the roadway and then returned to service.

3/13/17: MVC with rollover (I-79N @ mm 160)

 

3/13/17: Company 20 was alerted for a high speed, single vehicle MVC with rollover in the area of mile marker 159 on I-79N. Squad 203, Unit 202 and Medic 29 responded to the incident and upon arrival found one vehicle off the roadway on its top, but single occupant out of the vehicle. Due to confusion by motorists unfamiliar with the area and the incident being in such close proximity to the WV/PA state line our Pennsylvanian mutual aid department (Mount Morris Co. 18) received the call first and were on scene prior to Co. 20 units working with EMS to stabilize the occupant for transport. Company 20 provided incident shielding and traffic control until Mon EMS transported the patient to Ruby Memorial and the vehicle was able to be removed from scene.

3/4/17: MVC with rollover on West Run Road

3/4/17: Company 20 was dispatched for a reported MVC with rollover on West Run Road near Stewartstown Road. A Monongalia County Sheriff’s department unit who was in the area and arrived first on scene reported a single SUV on its roof and over an embankment with no one in or around the vehicle. Squad 203 responded and upon arriving on scene completed a secondary search with MON EMS and Mon County SD to ensure that there was no victim(s) at the incident. Squad 203’s crew then performed traffic control and scene lighting for towing personnel during the extensive vehicle recovery before returning to service.

3/3/17: Structure Fire – Wildlife Hill Road (Cheat Lake)

3/3/17: Company 20 was dispatched 3rd due to Wildlife Hill Road for a structure fire. Initial dispatch of the call was for a general fire alarm that was quickly upgraded to confirmed structure fire when the residents called in to report that the rear of their house was on fire. Engine 209 and Unit 202 responded to the incident and upon arrival were tasked by Co 14 command with deploying E209’s apartment load due to responding units being unable to get up the icy driveway. Unfortunately the remote location of the structure, hazardous early morning road conditions, strong wind conditions and lack of definitive water supply caused the structure to be a total loss. Company 20 units remained on scene for approximately six hours during the initial dispatch and were called upon again later in the day to assist with a rekindle of the structure.
