Vehicle Lift, Stabilization and Extrication Training

WRHSAC is offering Vehicle Lift, Stabilization and Extrication Training in Springfield on Wednesday and Thursday, October 25 and 26, 2023. 

The training is designed to challenge students with technically involved stabilization scenarios in order to build upon their skill set using strut & jack systems. Students will be introduced to the latest, most advanced equipment such as Res-q-jacks, Paratech Gold Struts, Rescue 42 and more as they deal with evolutions involving both light & heavy vehicles in compromising positions. Students will learn methods of vehicle stabilization and capturing to facilitate occupant extrication, without putting first responders at risk.

Scene Safety, Stabilization, Door /Roof Removals, Displacements, & Lifting / Capturing are just some of the components associated with a successful rescue operation when dealing with a confirmed vehicle pin. Remove any one of these, and the results could be disastrous for the victim and rescuers.

The training focus will be hands on learning, leading the students through rotations to simulate real life scenarios involving various motor vehicle collision scenarios.  Classroom style orientation will introduce concepts and equipment prior to hands on learning component of the training.

This is a two-day training. Students must be able to attend both days of the training.

The training is free. Registration is required. 

The training is open to first responders in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire and Hampden Counties.
