Double calls

Today station 20 was alerted for a multi dwelling fire. While getting ready to respond the box was held to station 40 and 60. Blair then alerted station 20 they received a call for a MVA with entrapment on old 22. Rescue 20 and Engine 20 responded moments later, deputy 20 requested cambria 70 to shut down east bound 22 and blue k**b (86) and Allegheny Twp (50) to assist . Arriving on scene crews found 1 vehicle into the woods just past the split on old 22. 1 patient was still in the vehicle with injuries. The patient was not entrapped or entangled in the vehicle however he was unable to get out due to injuries. Once ems arrived on scene crews from all departments assisted with taking him over the embankment to the litter and taking him to the unit. Station 20 remained on scene for a few hours until the vehicle could be removed out of the woods. Thank you to all stations who assisted today!
