This 2 day, 16 hour training session will encompass stabilization, basic extrication techniques, tow truck and rotator operations, as well as more advanced extrication techniques.  This class will emphasize hands-on training with no classroom time.  The training ground will have at least a dozen cars, a tractor trailer, and a cement truck.  Students will be broken into groups and will rotate through each workstation, with plenty of cut time. 

Techniques to be addressed:

  • Vehicle under-rides, over-rides and overturns.
  • The “B-Side Blowout”.
  • Marrying vehicles and heavy object isolation.
  • Large vehicle extrication.
  • “Haloing”.
  • Heavy rigging, tow truck and rotator operations.
  • …and much, much more.
  • This is not just your basic class…this will challenge your personal and departmental capabilities.
