EMS Assist in Enhaut
 
February 22, 2020
 

Shortly after midnight, units were dispatched to the Latsha Towers building on Mohn St to assist EMS on a medical call on the 10th floor. Crews arrived, and assisted EMS with patient packaging. When crews attempted to descend from the 10th floor, it was discovered that the elevator was malfunctioning, and unable to be used. Truck 50 (Steelton) was requested to the scene to assist. The patient was taken down the stairwell to the 6th floor, and on to the balcony. They were secured into a stokes basket, secured to the aerial bucket, and lowered to the ground where they were transferred to the transporting EMS unit.
