Modern Extrication: Overcoming the Challenges of Change

Monday, April 24
This class provides rescuers with the skills for vehicles of today and the future. Instruction follows leading edge extrication techniques and introduces real-life rescue experience. From basic principles to the newest methodology, rescuers will learn advanced alternatives for general application to present day vehicles as well as technique adjustments for industry changes. The details taught allow attendees to practice new techniques for modern vehicle changes even if newer vehicles are not yet available for training and learn to remove patients entrapped and entangled in the wreckage. Learn body mechanics to prevent fatigue at longer incidents and fluidity of motion between operators to easily meet rescue objectives with minimal personnel. Advanced extrication isn't the incident or scenario; it's the operator.
