Tuesday’s Topic: Firefighters Practice Vehicle Stabilization Skills

Tonight firefighters spent the evening refreshing and sharpening their vehicle stabilization skills utilizing some special equipment we carry on Rescue 29. A vehicle resting on its side is a very dangerous and frightening situation for the occupants trapped inside. The stabilization method shown in the photo is what we call a push-pull setup and allows for a clear, non-obstructed extrication pathway on the opposite side of the vehicle. The dedicated men and women who serve as our volunteers where able to have this vehicle stabilized in under 3 minutes!
