Stabilizing, lifting & capturing are the 3 vital components associated with a successful rescue operation when dealing with a confirmed pin. Remove any one of these, and the results could be disastrous for the victim & rescuers. The first day of this class is designed to provide students with a better understanding of the lifting & stabilization equipment typically used in the fire service.
The second day of this class is designed to build upon the students basic extrication skills and expose them to more advanced operations. The class will begin with an overall equipment review covering hydraulic tools as well as basic stabilization equipment such as cribbing, rescue jacks, & Paratech struts. Students will then be rotated through skill stations involving vehicle rollovers, side-resting vehicles, heavy frontal entrapments, and challenging rear entrapments.
Topics to be covered will include; side resting roof flaps, vertical crush techniques, inverted extrication techniques, third door conversions, modified dash lift, wide body conversions, tray cuts, & trunk tunneling.
