ANOTHER ENGINE STRUCK ON THE HIGHWAY VA – SLOW DOWN!

Firefighter Close Calls - Sun, 11/25/2018 - 14:36

The men and women of #CFEMS are pleading with all drivers to #MOVEOVER. It is happening all too often in our region where fire, police, EMS, highway safety workers, and wrecker operators, are being put in harms way by drivers not paying attention or moving over while we work on the roadways. Earlier today, Chesterfield Engine 11 was on the scene of a vehicle crash on Chippenham Pkwy, north bound, when another vehicle slammed into the rear of the engine. Fortunately, no firefighters were injured; however, the driver of the other vehicle was transported to the hospital. Our region was devastated last month when Hanover County Fire-EMS Department Lt Brad Clark was killed and 3 other firefighters injured when their engine was struck on Interstate 295. The Metro Richmond Fire Departments are begging all drivers to avoid distractions while driving (texting, eating, drinking,cell phone use, etc) and please #MoveOver when you see emergency vehicles, department of transportation vehicles, or tow vehicles working alongside the road! #everyonegoeshome #wehavefamiliestoo

ALBANY NY APPARATUS INVOLVED IN 3 VEHICLE CRASH

Firefighter Close Calls - Thu, 11/22/2018 - 09:18

One person went to the emergency room and one person was cited after a wreck in Northwest Albany on Tuesday.

According to fire officials, the driver of a fire truck, Octavious Gibson, went to the emergency room after the truck was hit at Pointe North Boulevard and Old Dawson Road.

There were 10 people involved in the three-vehicle accident, according to the Albany Police Department.

Police said a 2010 Nissan Armada, driven by Donald Tyrone Gilbert and carrying five passengers, was heading south on Pointe North Boulevard when the fire truck was heading west on Old Dawson Road around 5:15 p.m.

APD said Gilbert had a green light, but the fire truck was responding to a call and used due regard to enter the intersection because it was in emergency mode.

Officers said Gilbert failed to observe the fire truck entering the intersection with its lights and siren, and the Aarmada hit the truck. The Armada continued and also hit a 2006 Ford Mustang, driven by Darryl Fails.

Fire officials said Gibson had a head injury after his head hit the helmet of one of the two passengers in the fire truck and that his hip was sore from the seat belt. They reported that Gibson is OK.
