On October 3, 2010 firefighters from throughout the state completed two days of intensive training on vehicle extrication. The class was instructed by members of the Dallas Oregon Fire Department extrication team.

Day 1: consisted of two hours of classroom, followed by many hours of hands-on practice. Participants learned about new vehicle technology, vehicle construction and how to safely and quickly extricate trapped victims from their damaged vehicles. There was great emphasis placed on incident command, scene safety, patient safety and proper tool staging. Hands-on training included; vehicle stabilization, glass removal and how to safely cut a vehicle apart, without causing additional injury to the victim. The teams received instruction and hands-on experience using hand tools, air tools and hydraulic rescue tools to free trapped victims.

Day 2: was the day to evaluate the team's ability to safely and quickly respond to a simulated motor vehicle crash and extricate the victim(s), while utilizing the skills learned the previous day.

This training allowed both new skills to be developed and old skills to be refined. The training will improve the way we respond to motor vehicle crashes and better protect those requiring extrication from additional harm.
