While members tend to the injured driver, other firefighter are busy mitigating the many hazards of a motor vehicle accident. Probationary Firefighter Patrick McIntire pours absorbent material on leaking auto fluids while Engineer Jeremy New prepares to disconnect the automobile's battery. If left connected, the battery could allow air bags inside the car to activate and injure both firefighters and the patient.
