MORE GOVAC ACTION
2000 - 2004
May 2003
GOVAC crews stood by while Goshen Fire Dept.
dealt with a fire in an abandoned cottage. By the
time crews arrived the place was totally involved
in flames.
The rain and the already soaked ground made for
difficult footing. It is believed that kids set this
fire
This MVA happened during the bitter winter. The
driver was alone & lost control of the vehicle on a bad
turn. She was only about a mile from her home. She
survived. Head & Abdominal injuries. Campbell Hall FD
& Goshen FD performed the extrication. GOVAC &
StatFlight handled patient care. Note how the pole is
splintered above the vehicle. The pole also had a
transformer on it which made the extrication a little
tricky.

What started out as a structure fire turned quickly
into a hazmat incident when it was found that the
building contained drums of perfume. GOVAC

Both were treated & released.
