Milton Assists Georgetown

Today, while on the way to a prearranged standby in Seaford, Georgetown (77) was alerted for a MVC on DuPont Blvd in the area of Burger King. Engine 85-2 was a quarter mile away at the Walmart light and requested permission to make the response. Sussex granted the request and 85-2 arrived to find a three vehicle MVC with one patient. Crews stabilized the vehicles and completed debris cleanup. A-75 also responded and obtained a refusal. Per Deputy Chief Rogers, FF B. Millman had Dupont Blvd command. Command held the response to 85-2, freeing up Georgetown units to respond to another serious MVC in their district.
