On 12/17/14 crews from Fire 12 and Fire 3 responded to a MVC with entrapment call at Billingsley Road in the area of Annies Place. Responders found two vehicles in a head on collision, with one occupant trapped. Fire 12 worked diligently to remove the roof and doors of the vehicle, while Fire 3 operated the brake pedal cutters. In a team effort by the WVFD volunteers, the patient was able to be released from the vehicle, and flown out for specialty care.

Waldorf Volunteer Fire Department, Station 12, has received their newest piece of apparatus. This new truck will be an asset to the community, providing an additional resource for working operations on the fire ground. While the new truck has arrived, it still will need to have equipment added to it, and will need to have additional mounting and lettering in the weeks to come.
