Presented by: Tim O’Connor; FF, Lead Instructor with Back to Basics FF Training

Room 206

Vehicle extrication is a puzzle. But it’s not a normal puzzle; it’s a puzzle with constantly changing rules. Manufacturers strive to make the best vehicles on the road so they can make the most sales. They design their vehicles to perform safely when involved in a collision. What they don’t care about is the fire department and its ability to extricate someone from one of their vehicles. Extrication challenges facing todays crews have grown exponentially with new vehicle components and construction practices. This class will help dismantle those practices and show real-world ways to beat them, sometimes by using them to your advantage to get trapped occupants out in a timely manner. Learn maneuvers that can be used to extricate trapped civilians in a tested, timely manner.
