On Wednesday September 4th at 1:47pm Wagontown Fire Company along with Ambulance 144 (Westwood) and the East Brandywine Fire Company were dispatched to the 1300 Block of Manor Rd. East Brandywine was initially alerted for the intersetion of Manor Rd & E Reeceville Rd for the auto accident. The Initial reports were of a three-vehicle accident with one to be checked. Immediately after the initial dispatch the 911 Center advised they were getting reports of one unconscious.

Ambulance 144 requested an additional ambulance and medic to be dispatched at that time. This added Ambulance 41 (Coatesville) and Medic 93 (Brandywine Hospital) to the call.

Deputy 49 arrived first and advised the incident was located south of the intersection, in which he requested a helicopter be placed on standby for a pediatric patient with severe trauma and requested another ambulance. JeffStat 3 which is stationed at Brandywine Hospital was notified and the third ambulance was dispatched from 44 (Westwood).

Chief 35 arrived and established the Manor Rd. Command and requested a 4th ambulance (Honey Brook / Elverson EMS) for one of the victims of the accident, also had the fire police from 35 close Rt. 82 at Union and Cedar Knoll to ensure a safe working environment for those on the scene.

Ambulance 144 transported one pediatric patient to Brandywine to meet up with Jeffstat helicopter who would then transport the patient to a pediatric trauma center.

Ambulances then began transporting the balance of the patients to a local trauma center for treatment, and the fire crews then stood by until the scene could be cleared.

Once all patients were removed from the scene, the 49 units were returned and the 35 crews assisted with traffic control and the police department until the scene was cleared about an hour and a half later.
