"Jaws of Life" Training

By Captain Jeffery Daday Jr.
April 24, 2018

Vehicle extrication and patient removal at auto accidents were the topics at the Department's weekly drill on Monday, April 23, 2018.

Working as a team, firefighters used hydraulic rescue tools to train on different techniques to remove a patient from a vehicle when the vehicle's doors are compromised. Using a hydraulic spreader to force apart structural elements of the vehicle (the "Jaws of Life") as well as a hydraulic cutter, firefighters worked through several simulated accidents on a vehicle donated for training purposes by Bryson's Towing. The different scenarios required firefighters to remove the vehicle's doors and roof while maintaining a safe environment for firefighters and the simulated patients.
