Does anyone know of a form to use to track vehicle extrication training?

We just use a basic form that is universal, for all of our trainings. We have our dept name on the top, with places to put the date, what type of training, What equipment was used and so on. We also have listed on it all the names of our firefighters, we find our name and sign next to it. This way we have a count of who all was there, keeps tally of who makes the trainings and drill nights.
Chief Trost, Without reinventing the wheel here, many of the fire departments in the western USA use the in station program that tracks incident reporting and training as well as other things needed for a fire department. Any kind of training needs to be tracked for OSHA compliance, etc. Look into the computer based program you are using to see if it includes a training module like the program "Firehouse". To have this type of record on paper only is not protecting you fully. You cannot throw away locked training documents kept out there in cyberspace compared to losing a Class A material...

I just looked at the website and noted that now they include add on's for the iPad... Doesn't get anymore cutting edge than that... :D

Best of luck to you Chief,

Mike

Are you talking about annual training or initial training?
We have a sheet that logs basic competencies such as tool operations, door pops, roof removal, dash push/lift/roll, etc.

We also have a program where people can get trained to a higher level of technical rescue training. There are two steps, Squad Crew and Squad Technician. Squad Crew requirements include advanced vehicle/machinery extrication, stabilization (we hit this pretty hard), water/ice rescue, basic rope rescue, slope evacuation, confined space, etc.

The squad technician is a step above squad crewman and goes more in depth in all the above disciplines and also adds a technical rescue incident command aspect to things.
