Our members responded to several traffic accidents this month,
however the most significant call was on October 24th. At approximately 17:09hrs our members were alerted by the
town of East Greenbush Emergency Communications Center of a multi-car accident at the Interstate 90, Exit 9
eastbound on ramp that required heavy extrication involving multiple patients.
Car 1 arrived on scene, conducted an immediate scene size-up, and confirmed he had two patients in a four

in 23 minutes by the crew from Rescue 11 and Truck 11. Car 1 operated on scene with Car 4, Engine 7, Rescue 11, and Truck 11.
