Carrollton Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched 1141 Monday 7 Mar. 2011 to a 10-50PI on Route 17 at the Whippingham Parkway intersection. Rescue-10, Squad-10 and Zone-11 responded. First arriving unit reported two vehicles involved and one BLS trauma patient. Rescue-10 protected the scene while S-10 crew loaded and transported the patient to RRMC. IWSD and VSP units were also on scene.
Carrollton VFD was then dispatched 1241 "second call" to a medical emergency in this same area. Medic-11 responded, arrived on scene and began the transport of one BLS medical patient to RRMC. M-11 crew radioed ahead to S-10 crew to rendezvous at Huntington Park at the north foot of the James River Bridge in Newport News to exchange crews so M-11 crew could return to Station-10 in S-10 because of previous work commitments.
Upon arriving at Huntington Park, the S-10 crew came upon a three vehicle 10-50 which had just occurred on Mercury Blvd. at River Road. S-10 responded at 1308 ("third call" for Station-10) and reported possibly two BLS trauma patients. M-11 arrived at the same time while en route to RRMC and stopped so both crews could assess the patients at the 10-50 scene while maintaining direct contact with the medical patient in M-11. Only one BLS trauma patient was identified at the 10-50 scene so S-10 crew boarded M-11 and continued transport of the medical patient on board to RRMC.
S-10 crew then packaged and loaded the trauma patient from the 10-50 into S-10. When NNFD rescue units arrived on scene, jurisdiction was waived and S-10 continued the transport of the trauma patient to RRMC.
