December 24, 2021

12:31hrs - TVFD were dispatched to assist Ambulance 89-1 (EHBEMS) and paramedic 193 (Tower Health) in the woods behind Saint Peter's village for a subject having a medical emergency deep in the woods.

Paramedic 193 arrived on location and was directed to a trail by bystanders on location, the subject was found roughly a mile into the woods up a steep incline in a remote area.

Chief and Assistant 69 arrived on location, followed a few moments later by Utility 69 with ATV 69, 89-23 (Lt. McCully), an officer from PSP and 2 Chester County park rangers.

EMS stabilized the patient with crews utilizing a back board and stokes basket to remove the subject and the long haul out of the remote area began. Responders physically carried the subject down the trails to the waiting ATV where he was removed from the woods.

Extrication of the patient took about 45 minutes. The subject was taken to a local facility for treatment.

As always TVFD urges hikers to use caution while hiking at Saint Peter's Village due to difficult rescue conditions for responders in the event of an emergency.
