  • Freon Injury

    Just a heads up, Had a local F.D. with a Dodge Durango on its side with Pt. trapped. They had to take the roof off and when they cut the "B" post they cut a AC line to the rear AC. FF was wearing full PPE with eye protection but took a hit of freon R134 spent 5 hrs in hospital under observation
    The schematics show the line in the passengers side B post. Who knows where there at on other makes. ONE MORE THING to look for Adios Ken

    Never gave much thought to a freon line in a "B" post. Just something else to consider when you cut something where you cannot see. Also keep in mind that you could have other hidden dangers when making any cuts. It is my understanding that there are some exotic sports cars that have their fuel lines running through the "A" post. Full turn-out gear, eye protection and a charged fire line.... on EVERY extrication!
