Extrication HOT 

This coming October, Rocky Mountain Phoenix and Hurst Jaws of Life will once again be hosting our two day extrication training seminar for emergency responders. This event will be instructed by Alberta Vehicle Extrication Association along with local department members. This session will provide responders with an excellent learning and networking opportunity. The course will focus on hydraulic tool technique, hand tools, lifting, cribbing, and stabilization. 

This year we will also be including an EV response component to the event. We have teamed up with EVX, who specializes in EV response. In addition to in-class learning, participants will receive a hands-on walk through of a Tesla Model X that has been strategically modified to identify important hidden components that emergency responders need to be aware of to safely perform extrications on all electric vehicle makes and models. 

This seminar will take place over two 8 hour days with most of the time spent doing hands on practical training. We will ONLY be taking up to 32 students for this event. We will have multiple pits, offering more hands on time for the participants. I recommend that if it is possible you send Officers or Senior members to make sure the skills learned can be passed on to your other members.

When: October 26-27th , 2024, 8:00am – 5:00pm
