On the afternoon of Sunday, February 9, 2015, the Clinton First Aid & Rescue Squad was requested into Clinton Township for an injury on a construction site. BLS 4554 went responding from our station and the crew was quickly updated by the 9-1-1 dispatcher that access might be an issue.
MSU455 along with crew made access to the BLS Crew who had walked into the site, and was able to safely load the patient onto the unit's stretcher, for transport out to the Ambulance who was waiting on the cleared street. This allowed both the crew and patient a safer alternative than carrying the patient in a stokes basket by foot.
Previous to this emergency deployment, this grant-funded unit has deployed on emergency calls into Lebanon Township for a hiker assist, and a fall victim in the Town of Clinton, in addition to several community standby events. CFARS was the recipient of this unit through the New Jersey EMS Task Force, after a competitive grant process in 2014, and arrived to our station in the summer of 2014. This unit is available both locally, countywide, as well as part of the Task Force to respond anywhere requested, both in and outside New Jersey.
