We responded today with the Pottersville Volunteer Fire Company, Pottersville, NJ to a serious motorcycle crash on Fairmount Road in Tewksbury.

We treated and transported the patient to the landing zone, where NJSP Northstar transported to a trauma center.

At 1219 today, PVFC was dispatched for a motorcycle accident on Fairmount Road East just east of Hollowbrook Road. Within 2 minutes of dispatch, Chief 63 and Car 63-2 responded to the scene. Car 63-2 had 2 Firefighters onboard who are trained as EMT’s as well. Upon arriving on scene, EMT’s came in contact with the patient who sustained life threatening injuries. A tourniquet was applied to the patients leg as well as a pressure dressing and due to the severity of the injuries, a request for a helicopter to transport the patient was made. A brief patient assessment was done and obvious injuries were addressed prior to moving the patient. Pottersville Fire Company EMT’s began packaging the patient on scene with assistance from others and preparing them for transport to the LZ. The Whitehouse Rescue Squad responded with 2 BLS units to transport the patient. Engine 63-1 responded to the Purnell School with personnel to set up a landing zone for NorthSTAR. The patient was transferred to NorthSTAR and flown to a nearby trauma center. All responding agencies worked flawlessly together to package and move the patient in a timely manner.

The PVFC has multiple members who are trained as EMT’s for situations like this, where seconds count. PVFC also has EMS bags and AEDs in every vehicle, trauma bags, a portable suction unit, and even a pediatric EMS bag. We are happy to be able to serve our residents and those visiting with assets such as EMT’s and EMS equipment.
