Large Truck Extrication

Wednesday, April 26
Rescuers should not take a passenger-vehicle approach to a large-truck extrication. Students will gain a working knowledge of large truck and trailer construction including air, electrical, and suspension systems; the options for use of electric, pneumatic, and hydraulic tools to stabilize, gain access, and perform disentanglement from semi tractors, large straight trucks, and cars trapped under trailers; and working with heavy wreckers.
