Monday, September 19th, 2011 – On Saturday, September 17th, crews were alerted to assist police with traffic control and a telephone pole down as a result of a motor vehicle accident about 1/2 mile north of Mable Drive on Lincoln Blvd.  Engine 184 responded to find cable and phone lines down and a telephone pole leaning.  The cable and phone lines were removed, cones were put up around the area, and since Verizon gave no estimated time of arrival and there was no immediate danger, fire crews cleared and turned the scene over to police.  Elizabeth Boro station 139 assisted on scene.

Shortly after clearing that call, crews were again alerted for a motor vehicle accident on Lincoln Blvd, this time for a car into a garage with possible entrapment.  Engine 184, Ambulance 610, Elizabeth Boro Rescue 139 and QRS 139, and Elizabeth Twp EMS arrived on scene to find a blue Honda all the way through a metal garage.  The driver was not entrapped and transported to a local hospital by Ambulance 610.  Chief 184 requested Blaine Hill Squad 142 to block traffic at Lincoln Blvd and Lovedale intersection, and Liberty Boro Service 183 to block Lincoln Blvd at Bellbridge.  The vehicle was towed by Mendlowitz Trucking and all units cleared.
