The Dwight Fire Department Monday-night-training was on Auto Extrication. Members of the department went over stabilization, glass removal, taking doors, roof removal, among many other extrication skills.
Extrication has grown into one of our most important, life-saving operations.
Why has extrication training become so important?
First, there are a lot more cars on the road today than there were 30 or 40 years ago.
Second, we’ve learned, as a fire service, that taking the time to perform extrication is the right thing to do. It allows much better access to patients and minimizes the dangers of causing secondary injuries during their removal from the wreck.
Did you know that people not wearing a seat belt are 30 times more likely to be ejected from a vehicle during a crash? More than 3 out of 4 people who are ejected during a crash may perish.
A heartfelt thank you goes out to the Broadway Auto Salvage for donating the 3 vehicles used in last night's training.
