Drill Night: Air Chisels

For this week’s drill Co1 Firefighters practiced their skills with the air chisels. These are pneumatically powered chisels that can quickly cut through metal. These are not typically used on extrications but can be very useful to quickly cut through most metal parts found in vehicles. Along with working with the air chisels, our new members also learned how to use the slid hammer, or the “Bam-Bam-Tool” as we call it. This is an old school manually operated extrication tool that with the right operator is still useful today.
