  • Heavy Extrication: School Buses and Commercial Coaches

    Are you ready for some seriously mangled steel? Join us for an ALL HANDS-ON day of extrication using full size school buses and commercial coaches. School buses are considered one of the safest means of roadway transportation, why…due to the steel construction of the body. Why do commercial coaches remain on the road so long; construction materials. You’ll be cutting, ramming, and spreading 14, 16, 18, and 20 gauge steel using some of the best tools available. Learn what tools work best to gain access to school buses, and extricate the precious cargo of children. Why the ‘Golden Hour’ doesn’t apply to children? How does ‘compartmentalization’ reduce injury? School buses aren’t big yellow cars! They are radically different in construction methods and materials than any other vehicle. School buses are vastly different than transit and commercial coaches, even tractor trailer rigs. Rare indeed is the opportunity to cut/spread/ram commercial coaches. Jump off the porch and ‘run with the big dogs’ as you learn all about school buses and commercial coaches, especially the relevant anatomy for extrication. Two words to all the ‘rescue rangers’…bring it. This is a total immersion experience for school buses and the elusive commercial coach.

    TERC members have worked diligently to produce a great learning experience. They are well known for their propensity for quality education. Members have gathered bus vehicles and some of the newest rescue tools available to use. They’ve eliminated the familiar ‘death by PowerPoint’ session and shifted into high gear. This will be a rapid-fire, learn-while-doing event guided by a skilled presenter.

    The presenter will be Billy Leach, Jr. Following is some bio:
    Billy has been actively involved in Emergency Services since 1976, combining career and volunteer experience. He is the Developer and Senior Presenter for BIG RIG RESCUE™. Frequently he conducts training in vehicle rescue, and has presented at the International Vehicle Extrication Learning Symposium, Firehouse Expo, Fire Department Instructor’s Conference (FDIC), Fire Rescue Magazine’s First Due Conference, FDNY’s Technical Rescue School, and Los Angeles County FD Special Operations Division. Numerous presentation experiences include national and international audiences. Billy has co-authored a book, BIG RIG RESCUE¬© on the topic of heavy truck anatomy and extrication. Also, he is a Certified Rigger and Signalperson according to the National Crane Operators Certification Commission. Further, he is a certified Wreckmaster 6/7A/R, a Crosby Rigging Trainer, and Education Co-Chairman of IAFC Transportation Emergency Rescue Committee. This education leads to valuable offerings for emergency responders focusing on heavy rescue and extrication. Additionally, Billy has written articles for national and international publications such as Firehouse, International Firefighter, Technical Rescue, and Fire Engineering. As a selected committee member Billy helped develop the NFPA Hybrid/EV/Fuel Cell Vehicle program.

    (Ridiculously low) Cost per person: $75 for TERC members, $100 for non-members-however a portion of the fee will provide one annual membership in TERC. Be a part of the best there is, join TERC today.

    THIS IS A FUNDRAISING EVENT FOR TERC.
