Just before 3:30 pm, Rescue 14 and A14 responded assisting Elsmere Fire Company No.1 on an MVC with entrapment and multiple patients. Hockessin Fire Company - Station 19 also responded with 19-8 (Fire Chief), Rescue Engine 19, and A19 to assist. Elsmere’s units arrived finding multiple patients and one heavily trapped. Crews worked together over an extended time to free the patient who was transported along with New Castle County Paramedics to the hospital.
It’s times like these where our teamwork goes beyond station doors. It doesn’t matter the color of the trucks or the color of the gear. We are fortunate to have volunteers and career staff who can come together with a common goal to make a difference. ... See MoreSee Less
Staffed trucks matter.

When are people gonna slow down on that stretch of road !
I hope everyone is safe. This stretch of Mill Creek Road is our adopt a highway area and we were just on the road here Saturday and Sunday and we reside in this community. It appears to me that speed, vegetation, deer and to a lesser extent physical structure seem to make this intersection about as dangerous, if not more dangerous than the no-merge intersection of North Route 141 and Route 2 (Kirkwood highway near Elsmere) where there was also a collision today. I am sure Delaware has traffic engineers who could produce a plan to enhance safety at both locations.
People in hockessin drive so fast. I don’t know what they are in such a hurry. Leave earlier then u won’t have to rush and cause an accident.
Maybe DELDOT will put a traffic light there once someone gets killed.
Hate this Intersection. I cant even count the number of accidents there.
Brackenville Rd has become such a hazard anymore. High speed traffic and narrow roadway are not a good combo. PLEASE, friends, slow down! We almost need a daily police presence for an extended period of time so people learn to drive the speed limit.

I was recently in Oklahoma City and took some time to go to the Oklahoma Firefighters Museum. There is a Muriel on the wall that an artist and his wife took two years to paint. Part of the artwork is Hockessin's Autocar.
