Worker Critically Injured in Logging Accident Airlifted to Trauma Center

Jacob Kimerer

Multiple fire agencies and Airlift Northwest worked together to get the critical patient evacuated to a trauma center.

ng, WA: just before 10 a.m., crews with Orting Valley Fire and Graham Fire and Rescue were dispatched to the area along Brooks Road East for a reporting logging site accident.

The details of what happened have not been released but what we know so far is that one worker sustained critical injuries.

Both Orting Valley and Graham Fire worked together to get the critical patient to an area where Airlift Northwest could land to evacuate them to a trauma center.

It was a great example of how these departments work together to achieve a common goal in less than ideal circumstances.
