On Saturday, May 21st, the HFD and Town of Wappinger EMS were dispatched to Osborne Hill Road near Fleetwood Drive for a reported motorcycle accident. Chief 45-1 and Town of Wappinger EMS arrived on scene within 5 minutes and, due to the seriousness of injuries, a medevac helicopter was requested. The crew from Rescue 45-55 shut down the roadway and assisted with patient care. A landing zone was established by Engine 45-11 at the fire station and LifeNet Air 2 landed without incident. The patient was transported to Westchester Medical Center.

The HFD thanks Rombout FD for their assistance with traffic control and the New York State Police for their partnership.

During this EMS Week, the HFD is especially thankful for the emergency medical professionals
from our local community and beyond.
