Fuel Truck Overturned With Driver Trapped

Last evening Florence Township Rescue 4011 was dispatched to route 295 north bound for a MVA. Report was given of a fuel truck off into the woods with victim trapped and truck on fire. Battalion Chief Miller arrived to find NJSP applying dry chemical extinguisher to engine fire and driver was heavily trapped within the dislodged cab. With the help of Rescue 3018 2722 3318 it was a joint effort in rescuing the driver where BLS and ALS treated and patient was flown to a triage center. Engine 3311 provided manpower, as well. Thanks to 2781, 9094 and medic 35.

Again great job by all agencies and central communications
