Handling Tensioned Guy Wires Along Roadways

Yesterday on Facebook we added a picture of a guy wire into a car that a Brother shared.  A pretty good conversation about how to deal with these wires took place.  If your able scroll back on the FDT Facebook page to check it out.

If the guy wire is in a position that is pinning a patient or slowing extrication, what is your move?

Think about the above question with your crew and then watch the video below from the Washing State Department of Transportation.  It provides a pretty good explanation of how these barriers work and how we can deal with them on the scene.
