Dept 46 Dispatched For A Land Rescue

Fisherman Took A Spill In The River
At 7:31 PM on Saturday, Roulette, Dept 46 was dispatched for a land rescue behind 231 Main St. in Roulette.

An out of town fisherman slipped and fell on a rock, while fishing in the Allegheny River with waders, sustaining an injury to his arm and some hypothermia from the cold river water.

After initially going unconscious in the river, he was assisted by his fishing companions who pulled him out of the river and into the nearby field.

Jim Caskey, an EMT who was fishing nearby, attended to the young man until Roulette EMS and Rescue personnel arrived on scene minutes later.

He was checked out and warmed up by EMS, but refused transport to a hospital for further treatment.

The rapid response and proficiency of the Roulette Fire Department and Ambulance crew never ceases to amaze me.

Roulette residents are indeed fortunate to have such dedicated volunteers who leave whatever they are doing, day or night, to respond to help someone in need.

When you see one of these faithful volunteers, and the auxiliary members who back them up, tell them thanks for their service.

They, as well as their counterparts in other area communities, are our LOCAL HEROES!!
