Tonight training was on vehicle extrication.
Scenarios were set up on a members property well off the roadway.

2 cars were involved with 1 on its side in a ditch with its roof against at few trees and the other on all 4 tires with a treethrough the drivers compartment.

16 members split into 2 teams.

Team 1 (BC Siwy) working the first vehicle- single cars with 1 patient trapped by a tree that traveled through the windshield and through the back of the car.
Members had to stabilize the car, the tree, secure power and do a side removal to access and remove patient all while only using a combi tool and sawzaw.

Team 2 (DC Teschke) working the car in a ditch on it side against a few trees had to stabilize the vehicle, cut trees down to gain access and do a front driver side door removal with a dash lift.

Both teams worked safely but steady for over an hour before debriefing and cleaning up and returning to the station.

Both scenarios could happen on any township road at any time and being able to train like a real life incident is a great learning experience for our members.

Thank you to Doug Stokes for setting up the 2 real life scenarios.

Although Fire Extinguishers are a great thing to have they often can cause a false sense of security and cause more problems in the end if not used properly. Once again the best thing to do is GET OUT and STAY OUT and CALL 911. Now that we have covered that base lets learn about Fire Extinguishers.
