The last 24 hours have been especially busy for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue.

Between 6 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 29th and 6 a.m. Monday, Nov. 30th, there have been 40 collisions and MCFRS received 300 calls for service according to Fire and Rescue Spokesperson Pete Piringer.

“We average about 300 to 350 calls per day, but usually not on a Sunday and then it’s a high percentage of collisions in the last 24 hours,” Piringer said. ”

A high percentage of those were overturned vehicles, people trapped, including a few pedestrians struck,” he said.
