MFD Engine 7 called in Truck 7, Rescue 1, Utility 1, AMR Supervisor, and a second AMR ambulance for manpower. The decision was made the best solution would be to build a ramp from the front steps into the ambulance. Using saws, hammers, cribbing material, and a lot of wood MFD went to work creating the device to extricate the man.

He was transported to the Elliot where Engine 11 joined the crews to assist them in bringing the patient into the hospital with the assistance of the Elliot Hospital staff.
MFD and AMR offering the assistance they did allowed him to seek the medical help he needed at the hospital.
