Have you ever held or would consider a CPR class for parents to learn CPR and heimlich for their children in the event of an emergency? Our pediatrician has suggested we take it for years but we have had no luck finding one.
Thank you for all you do as our first responders and please stay safe!
Thank you to our 24 members who came out tonight for this important training. The instructor sure was surprised we had so many in attendance. Good job by all.
Emergency crews were called to 588 Route 143 in Coeymans Hollow after 9:30 p.m. on Friday, February 14th for a reported motor vehicle accident on a blind turn.
The Coeymans Hollow Fire Department responded along with Ravena Rescue and Albany County Paramedics.
An arriving Coeymans police officer reported there was a patient with a possible head injury.
According to Chief Bill Kapusta, the white car was exiting the driveway at 588 Route 143 when the pickup truck was heading around the blind turn when it struck the car that was pulling out of the driveway.
One patient was transported to the hospital by Ravena Resuce.
While crews were arriving on the scene of the crash, Coeymans Hollow was dispatched to the house directly next door to the crash incident for an EMS call with breathing problems.
EMS members of the fire department made their way next door to assist and an Albany County Sheriff's ambulance was called to the scene for that call.
The road was reduced to one lane and was temporarily blocked off as crews worked to load the vehicles onto the tow trucks. ... See MoreSee Less
