Gowanda mutual aid heavy extrication At 8:00 a.m. on November 23, Gowanda Fire was toned out for extrication equipment to the scene of a single vehicle accident with heavy entrapment on Bentley Road for the South Dayton Fire Department. Gowanda Chief 2 and Rescue 7 responded. A full size for pickup left the road and collided with several trees with a single male patient heavily trapped between the fire wall and seat area. A large amount of ripped up sheet metal was removed and a full roof removal was done.

JUMP TO FILE #112315118 After carefully removing torn metal from around the victims left leg and cutting the seat back loose, a come-along and chain were used to pull the fire wall and steering column outward and down from the patient. The "extra cab" door and rocker panel were also removed to allow a backboard to be slid under the patient, who was gently removed to an ambulance to take him

to a waiting Mercy Flight Helicopter. The driver suffered very serious leg and other injuries. Equipment used were two cutters, two spreaders, sawzall, chains and other tools. Nearly an hour was needed to do the job. South Dayton FD, Gowanda Fire and Gowanda Ambulance were on scene, and Dayton Fire Co was used to set up the landing zone and traffic control. NY State Police were also on location. - TIM TWICHELL
