Icy roadways lead to mayhem and unique challenges. In these conditions, it’s sometimes necessary to go outside the norm to help your patient. Severe weather conditions resulting in multiple accidents within the county meant a long delay for an available ambulance so permission was granted to use Branchville Engine 111 to transport a patient from the scene of a highway accident to a local area hospital.
