On July 30, 2016, a rescue assignment for Claymont was dispatched for an MVC in the 2500 block of Foulk Road. A13, B13, RE13 and a deputy rolled in less than a minute, as communications advised it was a single-car MVC on its side with the possibility of someone still inside. Medic-4 and Claymont ambulances arrived and notified the rescue they had confirmed entrapment. The rescue-engine landed, placed two struts in service to secure the vehicle as EMS attended to the patient. Due to the accident on the border, Rescue 25 was dispatched to assist. Crews used two hydraulic tools to free the trapped driver in less than 20 minutes.
