The Union Fire Company No. 1, the Po-Mar-Lin Fire Company (36) and the Bart Township Fire Company (51) were then alerted to the scene. Station 36 and Station 51 are both equipped with specialized tools to be used in large animal rescues.

Crews arrived and confirmed one cow in the manure pit. The Crews worked to open the fence and to secure the cow from going under.

After the successful rescue, the final units cleared in the incident at 1241 hours.
