New extrication videos use realistic scenarios
By Fire Fighting in Canada
Aug. 11, 2011 – Emergency responders must be proficient in certain techniques to extract injured victims in motor vehicle accidents while keeping themselves and other responders safe on the accident scene.
Vehicle Extrication, a seven-course series from Action Training Systems (available on classroom DVD or the interactive computer-based training), has shown to increase student knowledge retention by up to 50 per cent. Real extrication crews provide the demonstrations, which were shot on realistic locations with the actual equipment used daily on the roads of North America.
This series covers the topics of incident overview, stabilization, hazard control and safety, initial procedures, door and sidewall procedures, roof and trunk procedures and interior procedures. This series teaches to the requirements of NFPA 1001, sections 5.3.3 and 6.4.1 and 1670 Chapters 4 and 8.
