  • Sandhills CC Seminar

    Sandhills CC will be offering the following program during their annual seminar.

    Real World Extrication

    This is not the typical extrication program, rather offering 100% hands-on focusing on real world challenges. Using realistically damaged vehicles you’ll face rapid and efficient stabilization for autos in various positions, including downslope. After stabilization you will learn and practice advanced techniques for floor pan entry, side impact, intact roof displacement, axial spine alignment using a rope sling, inverted roof removal, trunk tunneling, ‘auto foldover’, pickup cab rear entry, and more. A variety of tools will be used, including recip saws, air chisels, Porto-Power, heavy hydraulic systems, hacksaws, winches, and others. Also included is The SIMPLE Approach to MVCs which is applicable to any vehicle. SIMPLE offers information on hybrids, advanced steels vs extrication, and SRS (aka airbags). The new ‘MARCH’ acronym for trauma care will be introduced as well.

    Attendees must furnish:
    Helmet to meet NFPA Technical Rescue Standard
    Full length fire retardant clothing meeting NFPA Std for Technical Rescue
    Safety glasses or goggles to meet ANSI Z89.1+ Standard (helmet shields alone are insufficient)
    Gloves to meet NFPA Cut Resistance and Heat Resistance Standard
    Protective footgear, including impact resistant toe cap meeting NFPA Std for
    Technical Rescue
    Handheld light

    Anyone wishing to attend must have previous training and considerable experience in vehicle extrication. Real World Extrication is not an entry level training program. The skills are developed to meet NFPA Standard 1670 Chapter 6, Technician Level.
