At 1:30am on Saturday February 8th, 2014 the East Dover Fire Company and the Silverton Fire Company were dispatched to a motor vehicle accident with entrapment in the area of Yellowbank Rd and Vaughn Ave. Lieutenant 2830 was the first arriving fire officer and found a car a short distance into the woods, standing vertical on its front bumper with the roof against a large tree. Toms River Fire Company No.2 was also dispatched on the special request for Heavy Rescue 2624. Members from Silverton Fire Company Heavy Rescue 2917 and East Dover Engine 2811 quickly worked to extricate the surviving occupant of the vehicle under the direct guidance of Chief 2900 acting as the Operations Section leader. East Dover Fire Company Engine 2801 responded to St Justins Church to setup a MedEvac landing zone for the patient.
The East Dover Fire Company would like to congratulate Andrew Albanese on successfully completing Firefighter Level 1 at the Toms River Fire Academy. Pictured is Probationary Firefighter Albanese with Asst. Chief Golden.
