    Just about all the departments that have tools aroud us have either Amkus or TNT. They both seem to be pretty dependable. Have only used a hurst combo tool and it was pretty heavy, but it did an excellent job. We have alot of heavy trucking accidents and need something that will handle the big trucks as well as the regular autos. W hope to stay "Interoperable" We do run a lot of automatic aid.

    I don't want to start a flap about extrication brands, but the ability to cut or spread has noting to do with brand names (at least among the major brands). It has to do with the true power of the tool, using the tool correctly to get the rated power, and the skill of the rescue tech. A particuliar tool of any brand may not be suited to do the spread or cut based on the part of the arm or blade that is being used.

    I think your best bet would be to go with Hurst. Yeah, they are heavy, but when it comes down to power, they blow everybody out of the water. We had to pop a door a few weeks ago and used our Holmatro equipment and couldnt pop it. Brought the Hurst in from neighboring dept. and had it popped in 1 attempt. Like I said they are heavy but they are well worth the investment. If you are in the midwest, shoot me an email and I will get you information on a place that sells, repairs, and does PM on Hurst/Centaur, MSA, and Horton ambulances. [email protected]

    PA put together a list for state certification of rescues. Shoot me an email, I think it's too big to post here, and it might take me a little bit to find it. Buried somewhere on the hard drive.

    Any body have a list of the equipment that would usually be carried on a heavy rescue? We have the chassis and the bed is ordered, and have been raising some money for the equipment, just need a list to go buy to help me finish my list. Would like to apply for some of the equipment through this years FIRE act. Any help would be appreciated.

    Keep an eye on CEDAP for extrication equipment. That will be opening at about the same time as AFG, and I'd be willing to bet that extrication will still be on their list. Info on the last CEDAP program can be found here:

    Good luck.

    A local department recieved a $35,000 grant (fed/local share) last year for a full set of extrication tools & accessories and air bags.

    The PG says the request must be reasonable. Take that to mean shop your process carefully and get an average and you won't get reduced in most cases.

    The Program Guidance always cautions you that the request must be "reasonable". That means shop your prices well and get the "average". If you stay with that game plan, most times you do not end up with a reduction.

    Extrication equipment

    Do they have set limits on extrication equipment, like they do for turnout gear? How about fitness equipment?
