  • Heavy Vehicle Extrication(Bus and Semi)

    Our fire department is wanting to do a heavy vehicle extrication class, concentrating on buses an semi-tractors. Our fire service institute does not offer a curriculum on it. Finding specialized instruction on this type of extrication training has been fruitless. Does anyone out there know of downloadable info or a source that I can contact for a curriculum?
    We have cut everything from Lynxs to limos, pickups to minivans, but not semis and buses.
    Your help would be greatly appreciated. We want to do it in the very near future-we have the vehicles, so we need it quickly.
    Thanks and stay safe.

    Where are you located at Chief... I know a couple names of instructors in Ohio if you are in this part of the country.

      Raymond "Pee Wee" Warren from Nothern Indiana does an awesome program and will usually travel anywhere to teach, he also serves as A Safety Officer for the Bus program during FDIC.

      He teaches through a group known as Emergency Books & Training, Inc.
      1-800-654-4748.

      They could also help you with any further location of instructors, they have an instructor membership program just for such needs.

      Hope this helps

        They're are several sources for information, some more credible and experienced than others.

        For starters, try contacting Bill Jackson at 407.844.5594. He has produced a book by the title of BIG RIG RESCUE, which is the only book that provides as much detail on the topic.

        Please email me personally for further information that will assust you greatly.

              Thank you very much. You were very helpful. I appreciate you taking the time to respond. Obviously, I was looking for cost-free info. There are alot of "experts" out there willing to sell their services.
              Again, thanks and stay safe.
