We have all been to numerous car accidents and most of them while unique in their own rights are still pretty standard as far as tactics go. Scene saftey, stabilize vehicle, access patient(s), extrication or remove.
I came across this picture and have been thinking about how we would approach this situation. Not something you see everyday . . . heck I'm not even sure how they got in this predicament.
But lets use our imagination, training, experience and knowledge and see how we would approach this scene and deal with the complications it presents.
From a Volunteers stand point I would have 1 Engine, Medium Rescue, a Ladder Paged from neighboring mutual aid department. a Medical Helocopter coming, and one forgotten tool (until auto ex training comes around) the local towing company we train with regularly. I would start by calling power company to have it shut off. Then i would my engine crew pack up with a charged line just incase. I would then use the heavy rotating wrecker from our local company and the ladder to rig and stabalize the car. Then use the ladder company to get the rescue crew to the patients. After patients have been treated and removed i would release everyone but the engine crew till the car was removed and power took control of scene.
