12.09.2013 - During this morning's icy weather, the Rescue headed up to the Pa Turnpike at the Toll Booth to assist Bear Creek FD with an accident with heavy entrapment.

Crews arrived to find a passenger vehicle under a parked tractor~trailer, with the male occupant trapped in the vehicle. The 112 crew arrived to find Bear Creek hard a work, already having flapped the roof, forced the driver's door and working on completing a wide body evolution. The 112 crew jumped in to assist, completing some of the necessary cuts to remove the 'B' post, then assisted in repositing the driver's seat so the patient could be removed and begin receiving the needed EMS treatment.

Rescue Assists Pittston City with Crash

11.7.2013 - Rescue 112 along with the Chief responded into Pittston City Thursday night for an accident with entrapment. The vehicle traveled down an 50ft embankment and landed inside a storage trailer on S. Main St. in the City. The vehicle would be suspended inside the trailer with the lone occupant trapped inside.

The Rescue arrived to find Pittston City FD crews working on stabilization and patient access. City Command requested 112 deploy all heavy stabilization tools to the immediate scene. Stabilization would be accomplished using Airshore Struts, box cribs, chains and a winch from Engine 148 (Jenkins) which was located on the topside of the incident.

Once stabilization was achieved, crews removed the passenger door and began packaging the patient. The patient would be removed by ground ladders to awaiting EMS crews. The extriction would take approximately one hour to complete.

It was a great job by all responding agencies. Excellent teamwork and communication by everyone.

9.2.2013 - Crews kept busy on Labor Day. The first run came in early in the morning, with the Rescue heading to Duryea to assist crews at the Crossin Towers building on Brown St. Due to a power outage, many of the elderly residents needed to be assisted from their rooms and taken to the building's community room. 112 worked with mutual aid departments to carry or assist many of the residents down the steps.

Later in the day, the Rescue responded to I81 Southbound for a vehicle rollover with reported entrapment. Due to multiple calls providing multiple mile markers, Pittston Twp Fire & Rescue were also dispatched.

Rescue 112 arrived to find Engine 125 at work stabilizing a vehicle that rolled over and rested atop the guiderail. The 112 crews went to work assisting with the stabilization so that EMS could provide care and removal of the injured driver.

Apartment Fire in West Pittston

9.1.2013 - The Rescue, Engine & Fire Police all responded to Luzerne Ave in West Pittston Sunday night for a working fire in a two story apartment building. West Pittston's Ladder arrived first, finding fire showing from first floor windows on the D side. A second alarm was quickly transmitted.

The Rescue & Engine crews would head up to the second floor, forcing the apartment door and beginning the primary search. Crews found a large dog secured in its crate, and safely evacuated it from the building. Crews pulled ceilings and accessed the attic in search of extension.

A boa constrictor was also rescued from the first floor fire apartment. By the end of the evening, the snake would go home with Sergeant Jason Bartoli. We know its now in good hands.

Dog on a Roof

8.26.2013 - We don't get the "cat stuck in a tree" call here at the 112 house. No, we get dogs on a porch roof.

The engine responded to assist the police department with a dog that broke out a 2nd story window and was pacing on the home's porch roof. While not the friendliest of residents, the dog was coaxed back into the home without incident.

Crews work double fatal on Interstate

7.24.2013 - Around 2:30am, crews would be sent to I81 Northbound at the Avoca Exit for a reported Tractor Trailer rollover. Initial reports indicated both fire and entrapment with word that a second vehicle was involved and could not be located.

Crews arrived to find a mini-van and tractor trailer on their driver's side in the median with both vehicles tightly intertwined with each other. Crews began stabilization and assessment while confirming the contents of the truck were not hazardous materials.

The extrication process would prove challenging. It took some heavy cutting to free the first occupant, before determinations could be made on the number of other occupants in the vehicle.

In all, the extrication/recovery process would last close to four hours and involve two heavy rescues (Avoca & Greenwood) along with the Avoca, Dupont and Greenwood Engine companies.

While challenging, the responding departments worked extremely well together and received high praise from both Luzerne County Coroners Office as well as the Pa State Police. We'd extend our sincere Thanks to both the Greenwood and Dupont depts for their assistance.
