School Bus Extrication Training, Scholarships, and Here We Come Indy

This past Friday and Saturday we helped with the Northern Ohio Fools Heavy Rescue 101 training event.  For the 7th year in a row this event has grown bigger and better.  This year firefighters from 8 states were represented.  In this post I’m going to share a few pictures and a brief training description specific to school bus extrication.  For more on school bus extrication CLICK HERE.

If the driver is pinned and main door access is not possible; one option is to go through the sidewall. Cut down the wall after removing the window. Behind this wall you will find lots of controls and wires. Remove it all and make room for your ram. Your ram will push the A post, steering column, and dash off the patient. Make sure to push against something solid like the B post.

Bare bones basics of heavy lifting. Driving wedges to free a pinned victim after a roll-over. Inches was all it took.

Jack team work to free our hose victim. This lift can be made with 2 jacks. Make sure to crib on either side of the victim. Lift together.

Another option for the roll-over pinning scenario.

This may be a late option, but train with your heavy wrecker operators in case you need them.
