Farm machinery accident

Station 5, Station 3, Rescue 1 dispatched to a large farm for a worker that was entangled in a piece of equipment. Upon arrival, the man had been extricated by other workers and First Aid was being administered. Realizing that the injury was beyond the capabilities of RTH, a helicopter was requested to transport the injured man to VCU Medical Center. Rescue 1 established the LZ on scene of the farm. Due to the location in the Northern part of the county, the Helicopter from Fredericksburg arrived within minutes. Great job of the Fire Dept members working with the EMS. Prior training with both agencies and local farmers on knowledge of equipment and farm operations has proven invaluable time and time again. Another partnership established with the community to help us serve you better.
