Several times a year the department sharpens their extrication skills utilizing donated vehicles and under differing scenarios. Drills encompass a wide variety of possibilities including school bus accidents, “big rig” challenges with 195 running through a portion of Millstone and motorcycle accidents. Pictured below is one team assembled in one of firefighters donated vehicle. Hard work and a little fun.
The Millstone Township Fire Department was dispatched to Pinehill Road and Stevenson Ave for a motor vehicle accident with entrapment. Engine 3275 (Maloney) arrived to find an SUV versus two separate fences, including one with several stone posts, with the driver entrapped. The Engine crew stabilized the vehicle with cribbing, stretched an 1 3/4″ land line for fire protection and utilized several Holmatro tools to remove both drivers side doors as well as the B post. Assistance was received by the crews of Rescue 3285 and Telesqurt 3290. Personnel assisted EMS with patient removal and packaging. The patient was transported to the Millstone Middle School at 5 Dawson Court where Squad 57 of the Monroe Township Fire District #2 had established a landing zone for MONOC 1. The patient was transported by MONOC 1 to Robert Wood Johnson. The accident was investigated by the New Jersey State Police.
Last night Millstone FF’s used Englishtown FD’s (12-1) door training prop to sharpen our skills in forcible entry techniques. Many times we need to gain entry to commercial buildings on fire after hours or weekends. So specialized training props like this are especially helpful. Thanks to Englistown Chief Lou Sarti and his department for hosting us!
