At 2157hrs Station 60 was dispatched to assist East Norwegian Twp Fire & Port Carbon Fire on Route 209 in the area of John’s Drive In Restaurant for a MVA with possible Entrapment. When units arrived on scene, they found a single vehicle down a 30′ embankment, which took out multiple trees and came to rest on its side along the river bank. Crews extricated the patient while another crew from R-63 setup a haul system to raise up the patient in a stokes basket. R-63 remained in service for approximately 1 hour.
