Accident with Entrapement in the 1 Box

Today around lunch time crews were hit out for an accident with injuries. Chief 84 and Rescue 37 hit the street and received additional information of possible double entrapment.  Chief 37-1 called for an additional Engine as units arrived. Chief 84 arrived on location first and confirmed one entrapped. Once evaluating the scene the box was down graded and held to only 37 units. Engine 37 arrived on location and pulled a protection line.  Crews had to take both doors on the drivers side and spread the dash to get the occupant extricated. The number of air bags and locations made the situation (even with the power secured) tough to work through. Once the patient was extricated crews assisted with patient packaging.
