On Sunday, April 2, Heavy Rescue 365 as well as two ambulances were dispatched with the Lebanon Borough Fire Company (Station 18) to a motor vehicle accident involving a car versus a house.
Chief 18 arrived and established command, as well as updated the incoming units that the home sustained moderate damage. The vehicle was driven away from the home, and thankfully the driver was uninjured.
Crews worked together to quickly develop a plan to shore up the home where the damage occurred. Although there was no life threat inside the building, it was located in a busy community, with elevated foot traffic. Crews placed temporary struts up once the power was secured, and debris was moved out of the way so temporary shoring could be constructed. Crews worked together to construct a 2 post vertical shore at just about 8 feet tall. Our 10 members operated on the scene from South Branch for just about 2 hours.
