Capital City Fire and Rescue responded to a remote road near Hoonah on Sunday, for an air rescue of a young man who had been in a motorcycle accident. News of the North reached out to assistant fire chief Travis Mead, who coordinated CCFR's response. "An Alaska State Trooper called me to inform me that there had been an Inreach activation for a person that had a possible broken leg over near Hoonah on one of the roads, one of the dirt roads, and he asked if CCFR was able to provide some medical personnel to fly over in a helicopter and assist with you know, treating and stabilizing and then bringing him over here to care," said Mead. "And I said, Yeah, absolutely. That's, you know, something that we do within CBJ, normally within the CBJ but we can go outside of it. If need be if requested, and we call that an Air Rescue and it's pretty much it's a scene we access with a helicopter usually and so we did that we were able to provide a paramedic and an EMT and they got their gear together and then met over at Temsco"
