Just after noon today, Volunteers from Waldorf, Hughesville, La Plata and Department of Emergency Services responded to a "one car accident with entrapment". HVFD Chief 2 (Herbert) arrived just after dispatch and reported a vehicle with subject inside and "live power lines" on the vehicle. WVFD Chief 3 (Jenkins) arrived on scene, established "command" and requested to expedite SMECO who arrived in minutes to secure the power. Patient was assisted from her vehicle by fire units, evaluated by EMS personnel, signing a "release" not requiring transport or further treatment. We thank SMECO for their fast response to the scene to help us provide scene safety
