bethesda chevy chase rescue squad

RS741 was dispatched to the area of River Road and Seven Locks Road for the personal injury collision. Company 10 from Cabin John arrived on the scene and reported a head-on crash with one possibly needing a door removal. The squad crew arrived on the scene and upon further evaluation, determined that the patient was pinned by the dash board and a full extrication would be needed.

The crew of 5 went to work and quickly removed all doors and the roof before making relief cuts in the A-post to roll the dash off of the patient. The extrication was complete in a matter of minutes and care was transferred to the awaiting EMS unit who transported to a local trauma center.
