Got a question for you guys. Last night we rolled on a .5 ton pick up on top of person. Now persons head and hands were stretched out on on side and feet out the oppusite side. person was DOA. Help me with this idea. Truck is upside down and to remove vehicle from person, secure 2 rams on either side of truck bed just behind cab. lift upward. What do you think. I have to do research on this as a next training situation. please help. thanks my bros and sises.

Does anyone know the NFPA standard on Vehicle Extrication?

My department just did a heavy rescue training on a school bus. That was a tough extrication. Those things a built pretty solid. We made some mistakes but we learned a lot and now we know what to do in the field. The emergency window side flat was the toughest part. We had to make several cuts to find the proper place and angle but that is why we train.

It's possible that the rescue team couldn't get access to the battery due to the hood being jammed or deformed, or both. Our practice is to disconnect the battery whenever it is practical, but we also teach our guys how to extricate safely when we can't disconnect the battery power for some reason.

If you strip the purchase point down to bare metal before using it as a spreader or ram base or prior to cutting, you won't short out a SRS device and have an unintendo deployment.

Oldman I did that an MVA some time ago- the tail lights were almost touching the head lights. TO assist with getting access, we spread off the tree, against the car, then got a ram in and continued the same. THe aim was to straighten the car up a bit and then continue metal movement. Different, but what it needed at the time.

I didn't notice the chin strap Tony, but a good point. Last thing a casualty wants is a 1kg fibreglass brick in the face...
