Plane Crash and Multiple Extrications
Posted On: Jun 18, 2021

June 16 - 17, 2021 - Although Local members are always hard at work, some shifts are busier than others. Local members work 48-hour shifts. During A-Shift's tour, members experienced a plane crash, residential structure fire (not shown), and two heavy extrications, in addition to their "normal" responsibilities of running medical emergencies, fire emergencies, rescues, and other various 9-1-1 calls.

Wednesday - 1:45 p.m. Local members responded to reports from Centennial Airport of an incoming plane that hit electrical lines and possibly crashed in Lone Tree, Colorado. A large black plume of smoke was visible from the nearby highway. Crews confirmed that a LanceAir Evolution single-turboprop plane had crashed and sadly there were no survivors. Members also needed to mitigate the small brush fire that ignited, while the electrical line was still charged. Therefore, air resources were called in to soak the nearby area. SMFR's OEM, Douglas County Office of Emergency ManagementDouglas County Sheriff's Office, Lone Tree Police, Parker Police Department, Douglas County Coroner, Centennial Airport, FAA, and NTSB all worked together on this incident.

As members from Rescue 34 (in Collapse 45 temporarily) were leaving the plane crash, they rolled up upon a vehicle that had just crashed and run off the highway. The vehicle sustained heavy damage and members extricated the party trapped quickly and also put out a small brush fire that started from the crash.

Thursday - 8:17 a.m. Local members were toned for an expanded vehicle accident that was then elevated to a motor vehicle incident requiring heavy extrication. A utility vehicle and car collided, trapping a person in the vehicle beneath the utility vehicle, against a traffic light. Working alongside members from Local 858, crews worked on stabilization, patient extraction, and hazardous material mitigation (fuel and oil).
