Large Truck Rescue Symposium

This two-day theory and hands on course will allow students to think outside the box, apply their skill and knowledge to real world extrication situations when dealing with large scale truck and trailer incidents. This course will bring to light how under-utilized their own fire departments may be when it comes to responding to these types of incidents. The students will come away with options and suggestions of ways they can prepare ahead of time to respond to the inevitable large scale truck and trailer collision. Bus extrication will also be part of the curriculum.
