At 5:10 a.m., March 21, crews were dispatched to Killingworth Road for a motor vehicle accident with rollover. The vehicle’s operator was not at the scene. HFVC personnel used absorbent material to capture leaking fluids, cleared road debris, and used a thermal imaging camera to search for possible occupants with nothing found.

At 9:40 a.m. Haddam was dispatched as mutual aid to Chester for a structure fire. Crews took Engine 1-13 and provided station and standby fire coverage at Chester Hose Company.

At 10:30 a.m., crews responded to Boulder Dell Road for a patient with respiratory distress, and at 11:15 a.m. HVFC was dispatched to Wig Hill Road for a malfunctioning residential fire alarm.

At 10 p.m. on March 21, HVFC was dispatched to Ivy Road for a CO alarm activation. Upon arrival, the home’s three occupants were outside the structure. All three were evaluated on scene by Haddam Ambulance Service. Firefighters metered the entire home with a CO detector and found zero readings.
