In 1999 there were 6.3 million police reported MVAs involving 11 million vehicles.  94% of those vehicles involved were passenger cars or light trucks.  Are your personnel properly trained on the tactics necessary to perform vehicle extrications?

Advances in construction materials and technology have created some new “rules” when conducting vehicle extrications.  Although some of the standard techniques utilized years ago are still applicable, many are not.  For example, the introduction of safety systems such as air bags and pretensioners  have created hidden dangers to rescuers.  In addition, the use of lighter materials makes some older extrication techniques less effective.

From initial size-up to advanced extrication techniques, we cover all topics needed to rapidly and effectively manage vehicle rescue operations.  This program also focuses on the various hazards that supplemental restraint systems present to rescuers and the methods to reduce them.
