By Firefighter/EMT Nathan Romig
May 20, 2018

On May 19th just after 6 PM Honey Brook Fire Company #1 along with units from Elverson-Honey Brook Area EMS(189) and Brandywine Hospital Paramedics(93) were alerted for an agricultural rescue at 3336 Horseshoe Pk. Rescue 33 and Engine 33-1 responded within minutes. While en-route units were updated with the information of a 3 Y/O child stuck in a manure pit. Units then requested the Chester County Technical Rescue Task Force (72) be added to the assignment. Once on-scene crews discovered the child was stuck in a below grade manure pit beneath the barn approximately 6-10 FT. Deputy 33 (Bailey) established Horseshoe Pike Command. Access was made to the manure pit via an access hatch just outside the barn. Crews from 33 started air monitoring and tried to rapidly extricate the child but found it difficult to maneuver through the pit so command pulled crews back to the exterior to continue air monitoring and provide ventilation until the technical rescue units arrived. Command requested a boat response from Wagontown Fire Company (35) because of the consistency of the manure in the pit. Rescues from Alert Fire Company (45) and Lionville Fire Company (47) were the first arriving units from the Task Force, their crews met with command and began game planning the rescue. Two Members from the task force entered the pit and utilized plywood to make a make-shift walk way to gain access to the child and extricate him from the pit. The child was then turned over to EMS and transported to a local hospital.

Honey Brook Fire Company #1 would like to thank all of the mutual aid units who responded on this call and made it a successful rescue.

Mutual Aid: EHBEMS (189), Chester County Rescue Task Force (72), Brandywine Hospital Paramedics (93), Wagontown Fire Company (35), Chester County HazMat (15),
