 Ambulance Design Finalized

After weeks of looking at ambulances from surrounding services, a trip by four members to Maine, and reviewing and tweaking specification prints, HFD members have finalized the ambulance design.  On May 3, the Association members, with the use of funds generously donated by a Hinesburg resident, approved the purchase, and signed the contract. 

Call Log

There were 21 EMS calls with 12 transports in April

Apr 14:  dispatched to a residence on Leavensworth Rd for a report of a CO/Fire alarm sounding.  The residence was checked, and no CO or smoke was found. 

Apr 9:  At 4:59 p.m. HFD, HPD and St Michaels Rescue were dispatched to Rte. 116 at the top of O’Brien’s hill for a report of a motor vehicle crash.  On arrival, responders found a three-car crash at the intersection with O’Brien’s Meadow Rd.  One vehicle had severe front-end damage.  Due to where the vehicles came to rest, Rte. 116 was closed to traffic.

It was quickly determined there were multiple patients.  Command requested two additional ambulances, which were dispatched from Charlotte and Shelburne.

Hinesburg EMS treated six patients.  Two patients were transported, one each by SMRS and Charlotte.  Upon confirming there were no other patients to be transported, Shelburne ambulance was thanked for their response and cancelled to go back in service.

After the ambulances were in route to UVMMC, and the first vehicle removed by Giroux’s, one lane of traffic was opened.  All vehicles were removed, and responders cleared the scene at 6:05 p.m.

Engines 1, 3 and Med 100 responded with six members

Apr 14:  report of smoke in a basement at 190 Martell Lane.  As reported last month, the call quickly escalated to a multiple alarm structure fire.  The State Fire Marshall investigated and believes the cause was electrical.

HFD would once again like to thank our mutual aid partners for the quick response.

Apr 22: HFD and HPD were dispatched at 10:00 p.m. to a motor vehicle crash on Silver Street near Isham Rd.  The initial report was a person was trapped inside the vehicle.  HPD arrived first and reported the person was out of the vehicle.  The vehicle had gone off the east side of Silver St into the ditch.  Hinesburg EMT’s checked on the operator who stated they were not injured and refused treatment.

When Giroux’s arrived to remove the vehicle, it was determined the undercarriage was stuck on the remains of a telephone pole.   HFD assisted Giroux’s by cutting and moving the pole stump enough so the vehicle could be removed from the ditch.

Engines 1, 3 and Med 100 responded with 10 members.
