Westernport Crash Damages Tri Towns EMS Building

May 2nd, 2021 by WCBC Radio

The Tri Towns EMS Building was struck by a pickup truck Saturday morning around 6:00 AM, resulting in two injuries to the occupants and the need for major repairs to the EMS building.

Although Tri Towns had a basic life support crew and an Allegany County Department of Emergency Services medic on scene, the crash made their ambulance inaccessable for transporting the injured. Neighboring fire and rescue departments swung into action, as the county's building collapse team was called to assess the damage.

Belt Construction was able to stabilize the building, the ambulance was eventually extricated, and Tri Towns EMS is using space at Potomac Volunteer Fire Department. Repairs to the building are going to take some time.
