On September 11th at 2:55 PM the East Fishkill Fire District was dispatched to a 2 car MVA with a car into a tree at the intersection of Route 82 and Creamery Road. Upon arrival command called for an additional ambulance due to the number of victims. Fortunately, none of the victims were trapped and their injuries didn’t appear to be life threatening. East Fishkill Fire District was assisted by Beekman Rescue with an ambulance as well as Union Vale rescue with an ambulance. Once it was determined that the scene could be handled with two ambulances, Union Vale was returned to service. The three patients were transported to local hospitals to be evaluated for their injuries by Beekman rescue and East Fishkill rescue. In addition to the fire department personnel, the East Fishkill Police were on scene. Route 82 was closed for 30 minutes for the safety of the responding members and the patients.
