On Saturday, February 18th, at approximately 0200 hours, Plainsboro PD, Station 100, and Station 49 were detailed to an overturned MVA on Route 1 south, between College Road and the South Brunswick border.
Plainsboro police arrived confirming entrapment and indicated that the vehicle was off the roadway and into the woods. Chief 49 and an Ambulance from Station 100 arrived and established “Route 1 Command”. Command notified responding units that the vehicle was 100 ft off the roadway and entangle around trees. “All Hands” was transmitted and Command requested Engine 66 to the scene to assist.
Squad 49 arrived 1st due and began stabilizing the vehicle and cutting a path to the vehicle with chains saws. The crew then deployed cutters and spreaders to access the patient. Rescue 49 and Engine 66 arrived and assisted with the driver side removal. The patient was turned over to Station 100 EMTs and Robert Wood Johnson Paramedics. The patient was transported to Capital Health Trauma Center in Trenton.
As always, a great professional unified effort by Plainsboro Fire, Station 100 and the Police Department. ... See MoreSee Less

On Monday, February 12, at approximately 1030 hours, Station 49 was detailed to Thoreau Drive for a gas line rupture. Upon the arrival of Squad 49 and Chief 49, the gas line rupture was heard loudly venting and was determined to be in the vicinity of Tennyson Drive, near George Davison Road.
Due to the rupture venting in close proximity to multiple residential townhouses, Command had Squad 49’s crew immediately evacuate 5 town homes and requested PSE&G with a rush. An additional Engine was also special called to the scene from Station 66 (Princeton Plasma Physics Lab).
Through air hazard monitoring, it was determined that the gas was also venting towards George Davison Road, subsequently requiring Plainsboro Pd and Plainsboro DPW to shut down George Davison Road to all traffic.
Squad 49 was repositioned to secure a water Suppoly on George Davison Road, while Ladder 49 and Engine 66 proceeded to the evacuated residential strip of homes.
PSE&G detailed a special crew and were able to secure the leak without incident at approximately 1150hrs. ... See MoreSee Less
