    I will be teaching the following at Firehouse World 2011:

    HANDS-ON; #HSAT4 – Scenario-Based Patient Extrication Training
    CATEGORY: Specialized Rescue
    SATURDAY(2/26) & repeated SUNDAY(2/27)

    OBJECTIVE: Participants receive training in victim rescue techniques and procedures in conformance with NFPA #1006 and NFPA #1670, Chapter 8, Technician-level competencies. Participants enrolled in this special University of Extrication program spend a full day studying real-world incidents and “responding” to realistic extrication scenarios with simulated patients trapped. Vendors provide a wide variety of rescue and extrication equipment that can be used to solve each scenario challenge and free the “patients” from the entrapment. Car-on-car, under-ride, large vehicle rollovers, and more await participants of this NFPA Technician-level challenge course. All training hours of this program are field-level, hands-on experience working scenario-based vehicle rescue incidents. Personal cameras are permitted. Required: Full Turnout gear (NFPA P.P.E.), NFPA Eye & Hearing Protection

    Electric Vehicle Training Program for Emergency Responders
    CATEGORY: Auto Extrication
    MONDAY (2/28)

    With the release of the Chevrolet VOLT and the Nissan LEAF electric plug-in vehicles, a new era of vehicle rescue challenges for fire, EMS, and rescue crews has arrived. University of Extrication’s Ron Moore presents the latest information on the features of these unique vehicles and how to handle incidents including crashes, fires, and even submersions into water. Through the cooperation of General Motors and Chevrolet, Ron was the only fire service individual able to research new extrication techniques on a total of five 2011 VOLT vehicles prior to their release in November of 2011. Electric vehicle extrication procedures will be a a focus of this special program.

    The Challenges of Extrication Involving Vehicles with Advanced Steel Structures
    CATEGORY: Auto Extrication
    TUESDAY (3/01)

    With increasing frequency, fire departments are reporting an inability to cut through common structural areas such as the B-pillars of late model vehicles. Our normal rescue cutting tools, whether hydraulic, electric, or air-powered are stalling out. They may be essentially out-gunned by new ultra high-strength steel alloys called advanced steels. These steels such as Boron can be found in the roof pillars, roof rail, or rocker channels on a wide array of late-model vehicles.

    In this presentation, Ron Moore brings the pages of his recent 5-part University of Extrication series on this topic to life as he explains the lessons learned from his nearly year-long research project into how rescue teams can prepare themselves to meet the challenges presented by the presence of advanced steels. Most importantly, Ron’s program will detail some new alternative extrication techniques for departments that do not have advanced steel cutting capabilities to implement when faced with an advanced steel vehicle rescue incident. These steels are here today. Is your rescue team ready for the challenge of advanced steel?
