Extrication help from Hybrid Response Guide

Nov. 30, 2010 - Unlike the emergency response guides found online, which contain time consuming and unnecessary information for field personnel, the Hybrid Response Guide 2000-2011 (HRG), for all current high-voltage hybrid vehicles, contains concise, pertinent information for high voltage and SRS/airbag systems. This compact, easy to use guide will aid in safe, fast extrication of vehicle occupants, as well as protecting your firefighters/EMS personnel from high voltage and SRS/airbag incidents. Presented in a waterproof, spiral bound, organized colour manual, the HRG is tabbed with vehicle ID. It includes all high-voltage component locations and power-down procedures, all SRS/airbag locations and SRS/airbag power down procedures, all high-voltage and mid-voltage hybrids to date, and offensive and defensive fire attack and water submersion recommendations. It is created to fit in turnout gear, extrication tool kits and map pockets, and designed to reduce fears of high-voltage electrocution and airbag incidents. For more information, or to purchase the guide, visit the Annex Bookstore.
