Recently, approximately thirty Technical Rescue school personnel and thirty Hazardous Material team members completed two weeks of extrication rescue training. This also served as the first module of the Technical Rescue school class.
The class consisted of two modules of auto extrication, with the second module comprised of heavy extrication training on tractor trailers, cars in limited access scenarios, as well as transit and school buses, all offering a high degree of challenge and teamwork.
