Vehicle Rescue Training
November 2, 2021

SFD volunteers continued a series of department led vehicle rescue classes at Wilcox Auto Salvage on Tuesday night. Members were able to remove the doors and roof from a four door passenger vehicle, and then push the dash board forward using hydraulic rams. The second scenario was a work truck with a utility body on its side. The crew removed the windshield and cut the support posts, allowing them to fold the roof of the truck out of the way. This is a viable option for gaining access to the occupants of a vehicle that does not end up on the wheels.
