man every muscle in my body hurts.....four 20 something tourists in a rental car went off CA hwy 9 at 1410 and tumbled 500 feet down the hillside [45* slope] until it slammed into an oak tree. First CZU CAL Fire unit got on scene at 1420 and called for a mutal aid response and medical helicopters for the evac. we got assigned to the LZ to bring down the birds. 3 engine companies and a heavy rescue unit responded for mutual aid from Santa Clara County as did rangers from Mid Pen open space, State parks, & Caltrans work crews. All told we had 47 people on scene in 90 degree heat. The first rescue team rappeled down and started extrication, due to the heat and terrain crews rotated in and out with each patient. it took 1:45 to get the first of the injured up to the road and 30 minutes each for each of the next 3.
After we got the two criticals flown out in the helos we moved our engine to the scene and helped man the haul lines for the last two injured. We got the last patient up top sometime between 1730 and 1800 then we had to retrieve all the extrication gear and haul it back to the top.

We got back to the station at 1900....

me I just swallowed 4 ibuprofens and I'm grabbing a bite to eat

Awesome call in that so many agencies got together and worked so well with out any turf squabbles and we got all 4 people to the hospital alive
