Truck 9 Rescues Injured Logger Trapped in Tree
On August 23, just after 10 a.m. Truck Company 9 was dispatched to assist for a male who had injured himself while using a chainsaw. Upon arrival to the scene it was discovered that the patient would be approximately 65 feet in the air and unable to free himself from the tree. Members were able to get the Aerial into position to climb up and access the patient. After taking proper security measures for themselves and the patient they were able to use a Sawzall to cut the branch that was pinning the patient in the tree. This operation took just over 1 hour before the patient was secured for transport to the hospital. Great job by all units involved.
