Curva, Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija. Being of closest proximity, the personnel of Guimba Fire Station (GFS) alerted the Guimba Rescue Team. The composite team of GFS and GRT hustled to the aforementioned area to verify and if necessary, respond to any needed emergencies. The team of Shift A personnel of GFS comprised of, and led by AMFM SFO3 Froilan D Jumaquio, FO2 Francisco G Almazan Jr, FO1 Joel R Nadera and FO1 Mikhail Bien G Rivera together with three (3) members of GRT acted as first responders.

FO1 Marvin DG Felipe remained at the station as the Communications Operator.

            With the subject location situated around 14.1km from the station, the travel time took 12 precious minutes due to heavy traffic along the area of the accident. Upon arrival at the scene, one certain Manuel Santos was trapped inside his black Mitsubishi Galant. The victim barely responsive, was initially observed to sustain a large forehead wound, and possible fractures in the upper and lower extremities.
