The department was dispatched at 1820 hrs for a fall victim along the Delaware river and Canal Tow path. With members out of town finishing up Swift water tech. Firefighter SIWY requested R26 (already on the road returning from an MVA) and Bucks County E46 Crews set up a 4:1 mechanical advantage, packaged the victim into a stokes basket and hauled the victim up the embankment to an awaiting BLS. All personal work as 1 team and accomplished the job. Job well done.
