Tri-Community handles busy day including fatal MVA

Posted on February 15, 2017 at 6:55 PM

It has been a busy day for Tri-Community responders.  We have had equipment on the street since 10am between 4 seperate calls.

One call, with Bergholz Fire, was for a fatal MVA.  Our thoughts and prayers for all involved.


From the news:

 

WHEATFIELD, N.Y. (WIVB) — At least one person is dead as the result of a crash in the Town of Wheatfield.

 

The crash, which occurred Wednesday afternoon, closed off Lockport Rd. from Nash Rd. to Ward Rd.

 

It is not clear who was killed, or what the circumstances surrounding the crash were.

 

News 4 will provide more information as soon as it becomes available.


Tri-Community handles MCI (Car versus school bus MVA)

Posted on November 17, 2016 at 10:20 AM

Yesterday was another busy day for Tri-Community volunteers! A total of 8 calls were handled, including 1 mutual aid request and 1 motor vehicle accident involving a school bus.

For the MVA, Tri-Community would like to thank all of our responders that came out to assist which allowed for numerous ALS providers on scene as well as our Units 1 and 2. Bergholz Fire Company handled command and operations, and requested the assistance from area fire companies for coverage as well as traffic control. We would like to thank our brothers and sisters from Twin City Ambulance who responded 1 ambulance for assistance until we could determine the total number of resources that would actually be needed.

Yesterday put our responders MCI training to practice, and the incident was handled very well by all those that were involved! Close to three dozen patients were evaluated!

Thank you to representatives from the Niagara Wheatfield School District, Bergholz Fire Company, Sanborn Fire Company, Shawnee Fire Company, St. Johnsburg Fire Company, Twin City Ambulance, Niagara County Sheriffs Office, New York State Police and our very own responders from Tri-Community Ambulance!

Busy weekend for Tri-Community volunteers!

Posted on October 17, 2016 at 12:30 AM

Tri-Community volunteers have had a busy weekend!  

First, several of our volunteer responders are in Syracuse, NY at the OnCenter for the annual NYS Department of Health EMS Conference ("vital Signs Weekend") to earn CME credits for their EMT and Paramedic certifications.  Each year responders must log Continuing Medical Education hours to be used to recertify.  A big thank you to those members who gave up this nice fall weekend to spend in lecture halls and conference rooms!

While this was going on, volunteers were on staff at the Niagara Wheatfield versus Jamestown highschool football game at Niagara Wheatfield High School.  Our unit 1 and unit 3 were on hand to provide EMS coverage in the event of an injury requiring transport.

Lastly, Tri-Community has received a total of 14 calls since Friday thru Sunday at noon!  3 of these calls were mutual aid to nearby districts (1 City of Niagara Falls call and 2 calls mutual aid to Cambria fire company).

Thank you to our dedicated volunteers!

Tri-Community recognized for involvement in major regional fire response in Niagara Falls!

Posted on October 14, 2014 at 11:00 PM

This evening Tri-Community was honored to be requested to attend an awards ceremony at the City of Niagara Falls City Hall for our response efforts with a major, historical fire within the city.

The Norampac-Greenpac fire in the city required a massive county-wide and entire Western New York response!  Companies from across ALL of Niagara County, several from Erie, Genesee and Cattaraugus counties responded with pumpers, rescues, aerial ladders and tankers to help extinguish the biggest fire in City of Niagara Falls history!  Rural Metro Medical Services depleted all resources with fire standby activities.  Tri-Community placed our ENTIRE fleet on standby for 24 hours to ensure coverage in our area, mutual aid areas and within the City of Niagara Falls.

Tri-Community played a key supporting role in EMS coverage for this large-scale incident.

Representing Tri-Community the evening of the public recognition was President Phil Richardson.
