Holmatro Offers First Responders Rescue Training
The Holmatro Safety Team Transporter is making pitstops in Brentwood, TN (Sept 25-26) & St. Louis (Oct 1- 2) as Holmatro gears up emergency extrication training for local First Responders.
Unique in nature, this program provides a hands-on opportunity for participants to practice extrication techniques on late model vehicles.
Multiple Rescue Scenarios
The training consists of two morning classroom sessions followed by a rotation through four separate scenarios:
• Car on Side/Difficult Access
• Car vs. Semi Rear Side Under run
• Car on Roof with Crush
• Crush Injury Syndrome
The class will be split into four groups to allow everyone hands-on use of the tools as they cycle through each scenario.
