Busy 4th of July Night for the DVFD - Dagsboro Church of God

Monday, June 8, 2015
On Saturday July 4th over 36,000 people descended on the Dagsboro area to see the Church of Gods annual 4th of July celebration. The day started slow at 10:00 with on duty crews at the church contending with minor scraps, bruises, & other minor medical problems, but all the would change at the start of the first fireworks explosion. At the start of the fireworks show a total of 5 brush pieces, 5 Engine Companies, 1 Heavy Rescue, 5 BLS crews & 1 ALS crew manning the WMD/Aid Station Trailer, were ready to watch the show, so they thought. It wasn't long before a fight broke out and church security personnel used a large can of pepper spray w/ CS gas to try and brake up the fight. It is not known how many people were sprayed, but one by one patients began coming to the aid station and soon there were a total of 22 patients in need of medical attention. Conditions ranged from respiratory distress to eye & face decontamination. The WMD trailer was activated and set-up for DECON operations, with IC requesting additional BLS & ALS to the scene. Meanwhile with Rescue Co. 73 & Engine Co. 905 assisting with traffic control at the intersection of Dupont Blvd. & Nine Foot Rd. a report of a pedestrian struck was reported to them in the area of the railroad tracks on Clayton St. Engine 905 responded and the DVFD, FVFD EMS, & Trooper II were alerted for the additional. The call was labeled good intent & unfounded by DVFD Chief Glenn. With crews still tied up with the MCI at the church & traffic backed up for over 5 miles both N/B & 3 miles S/B on Dupont Blvd. a box assignment for a reported apartment fire with a child reported trapped was dispatched in Millsboro, sending Engine Co. 905, 731 & Rescue Co. 73 on the call. This call was a false report and units were returned to service. A total of 8 patient were transported from the church and another 3 were later transported from their residences. Final crews cleared the area around 24:00. Fireworks Detail: Engine Co. 73 (844), Brush 83, Brush 79, Amb. B-79 Aid Station Detail: Brush 73, Gator 73, Amb. A-76, Amb.
