Heavy Extrication – 8 Hour H.O.T. Class

We plan on setting up several stations for the students to work through with heavy extrication. This will include car underride of a trailer. A dump truck or another large truck overturned on a vehicle and discuss chains, slings, hydrofusion struts, and various stabilization options. An additional station to show how to lift a heavy truck, showing the differences in weight ratings between standard vehicles to see how important the effects have on your equipment for these challenging incidents. The last scenario will challenge the students from the information they learned that day to include lifting a heavy truck, winching operations, stabilizing a heavy object such as concrete etc. One station will include a guardrail intrusion scenario through a car pinning a pt. requiring extrication.
