Today the firefighters of Rescue Co.1 trained on our Griphoist and Tuflex Roundslings. These tools will greatly increase our capabilities to raise, lower, and stabilize heavy loads; specifically vehicles in awkward positions. Today’s focus was a basic understanding of the tools, and performing a controlled roll of a vehicle on its side.
In addition to training on the new tools, firefighters also learned to perform a new extrication technique, “cracking the egg”. This technique gives us another way to safely remove a patience from an overturned car.
