  • Armored vehicles

    Has anyone had the pleasure of cutting a armored vehicle apart?

    How did you do it?
    Did the tools hold up well?
    What tools were used?

    Maybe Billy could add this to his big truck and school bus training.

    Cutting, as we know it, is not really an option with these monsters. There are no easy answers here. You might check the recent postings on the extrication forum at www.sarbc.org (items 40-1, 44 and 45) There is a real hazard with the on-board crews of these wagons; they are armed, jumpy and, after an accident, probably disoriented.

        You might want to try CBIRF Unit aboard Camp Lejeune, NC they do all sorts of rescue w/ military vehicles to include I am sure armored vehicles.

          Hello All,
          I'm a fleet manager for an armored car company in my part of the woods we run a fleet of trucks that range from tractor trailers to vans and everything in between.
          Yes the crew could be a hazard if you showed up at the scene in your personel vehicle and no other emergency services were at the scene they could mistake you for a bad guy but then again it depends on the type of accident and how it happend was it truly an accident or a set-up?
          All of your tools should work well,they may have to work a little harder and you may have to get creative to make an entry point but they should not have a problem doing the job at hand and there are some other issues,if you have to take a window you just can't take a center punch to the window it's not going to work second if the truck is loaded when the mva occurs now you should make sure the police are on the scene this way no false allegations can be made.
