Here is a recap of the under-ride pit from the 2013 BGSU State Fire School heavy rescue class. Austrian FF Bernd Altinger wore a Fire Cam from Firevideo.net throughout the week. Special thanks to Howell Rescue Systems for providing tools. Give the links mentioned a “Like”; they are huge supporters of training. More great supporters will be mentioned in coming posts. We couldn’t do the class without them all.
We all have the potential to face an under-ride scenario. Columbus FF JD Vasbinder talks the crew through the steps of gaining access to a pinned driver in the video below. The teaching points are in the video, so be sure to watch with your crew to learn new or review already known techniques.
