Tree Down on Occupied Car

By Jack Casey

A call for a tree down on an occupied car on West Lake Blvd. in the Mahopac Falls Fire District brought out EMS, Fire and Heavy Rescue units, Carmel Police and equipment from the Putnam County Highway Dept. First arriving units found a large tree across the roof of a car with the driver still inside. Chief Brian Sacher assumed Incident Command and Asst. Chiefs' Jeff Boyle andBob Trace took charge of Operations. Upon a closer look, firefighters found the driver in good condition and not injured. Removal of the tree was the first task that had to be assessed. It so happened that one of the Falls firefighters was on his way home when he heard the call and responded in his work truck. James McGinty III, owner of JLJ Truck & Equipment Repair and 3rd generation Mahopac Falls firefighter, was soon at the "right time- right place". His expertise and knowledge, along with a heavy duty crane/boom on his work truck was a lifesaving sight to the crews on the scene.

Thanks for the great coverage.

Units: 19-1-1, 19-1-2, 19-1-3, 19-6-1, and 19-3-1
