      Holmatro puts out a guidebook to vehicle extrication with locations of seatbelt pretensioners, power cables for hybrids, airbag locations, battery locations and such. They also offer updates when new models come out.

        Well..............

        Write Your Own.


        OK, Seriously, There are Books, Videos, etc out there. Look at www.MFRI.org which is the website for the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute for some ideas, including "Downloadable Drills" that you can use for your Training .....


        Back to "Write Your Own..." There is a lot of information out there, not all of which is useable in your situation. As an Officer in a Heavy Rescue Company for over 30 years, I've had the good fortune (Honor, in some cases) to meet and learn from some extremely talented people. But, "One Size Fits All" doesn't always apply in Rescue Work. For instance, If a Textbook is heavily slanted toward the use of Air Bags, that's a Plus for those who have and use them, but a minus for those who don't. Tactics/strategy for Extrication also Varies. There are those who expound on Walking around a Vehicle several times, then deploying a Large Tarp near the Vehicle and laying out the tools that you're going to use....... Do that here and we'll come in and do the extrication and take up while you're still laying out Tools. It's all a matter of adapting what works for you........ Good Luck......

          Hey Harve... you're not suppose to discuss anything... you're "banned."

          Us old farts have to watch out for each other you know. We're outnumbered but we will win by our superior dazzlement.

          Bravo.

            Search Firehouse.com (and/or your old FH magazines) for Ron Moore's "University of Extrication" series. While not a textbook as such, it's an outstanding collection of information from an expert in the field.

            The "Phases of Rescue" extrication drill is an excellent structured approach to extrication. Obviously not the "be all and end all," it does make the extrication team approach an extrication in a stepped manner, rather like learning to do your ABC's when you're learning CPR.

            In addition, the "Phases" drill can be timed (in each phase) providing a team with a "grade". If you're accomplished with your tools and techniques, you can end up with a vehicle with one side blown out, the roof off, and the dash rolled in well under ten minutes. That includes the initial survey, making contact with the "patient," blocking/chocking, and disconnecting the battery.
            Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

            Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

                Does that mean he is bassed?

                It was just a mispelling then.

                That happens when you get older.

                I'm just glad he knew what he meant. Makes me feel much better.

                  When learning about auto extraction learn the basic's First. I advocate basic tool knowledge. Know how to use the hand and small power tools. Then when you train with the heavy hydraulics you apply that knowledge. Most tool makers have video instruction on thier web sites a great source of free info. I remember watching the Carbusters series years ago was a good source of information back then. Books are nice but seeing auto extraction on dvd is better.
