The citizen attempted to drive through the flooded roadway. She was unable to control the vehicle do [SIC] to the water conditions. Water was up to her window in the car. She exited the vehicle and tried to wade through the water to safety. Firefighters from Monroe Township entered the water with the appropriate water rescue gear and were able to locate the patient. They were able to place a life vest on her and get her to safety. The patient was very lucky with the outcome of this situation. She did not require further medical assistance or transport.
The Licking County 911 Center did a outstanding job in assisting responding personnel with the location of the victim. The new MARCS radio system was utilized to communicate clearly and effectively with responding agencies and the 911 center. We look forward to using this system on a daily basis.
Please, If the road is flooded drive around. You are placing your self at risk of injury or death.
Great Job By All Responding Agencies!!
This was just about 2 miles down the road from me.
Fortunately for this lady, the local fire departments are better at water rescue than they are at proper English grammar.
