Our weekly training, this evening took place at US Evironmental on Boot Rd. in Downingtown Borough.
Our rescue crew volunteers on Rescue 45, along with Rescue 6 of the West Whiteland Fire Co. conducted stabilization and an air-bag lifting scenario with training of a tractor-trailer cab on its side. The teams started by stabilizing the truck using our Paratech Fire & Rescue Equipment struts and cribbing. Then the crews conducted a lifting operation using both Maxiforce high and Resq-Tech low pressure air bags.
We would like to thank Gregg Baitinger and the employees of US Environmental for partnering and allowing us to use their facility and heavy equipment for our training.
