Sunday, December 16, 2018

On December 15, 2018 at 1308, the DFD was alerted for reported vehicle fire as the result of a motor vehicle collision on N. DuPont Hwy in the area of Rustic lane. Crews at the station helping out with Operation Santa staffed the apparatus. E5, under the direction of Asst. Chief Michael O’Connor, arrived on scene to find a three car accident. No vehicles were on fire or smoking. E5 and E3’s crews began assessing the occupants of all three vehicles. It was determined that two individuals needed medical attention. BLS units were dispatched. The vehicles were secured and the patients were attended to until the ambulances arrived on scene. Two drivers were transported to the local ED for evaluation. Both units cleared, turning the scene over to Dover PD for investigation. Both units then responded to the Mainstay Suites for an automatic fire alarm.
