Dual flyout from Balcony Collapse

CFD units were alerted to the 100 block of Kennedy Street for a reported balcony collapse. Engine 1-1 and Tower 1 arrived, finding two patients that fell from a second story balcony. Two air-medical units were requested by Command 1. Crews assisted with patient care until the arrival of EMS units. Engine 1-2 handled a landing zone at Knouse Foods for one of the air-medical units, while the other utilized the helipad at Chambersburg Hospital. Crews operated for just under an hour. The Borough Building Code Official assisted on the scene.
