Vehicle Rescue Operations Course

Last weekend, The Long Valley First Aid Squad conducted a Vehicle Rescue Operations course for new Rescue Services Members. 12 LVFAS men and women and several fire fighters from WTFD participated. This course teaches rescuers how to stabilize, lift, and extricate patients from passenger vehicles. Students got tons of hands-on training with stabilization equipment, hydraulic rescue tools, reciprocating saws, high pressure lifting bags, grips-hoists, hand tools and much more.
