This past Friday and Saturday we helped with the Northern Ohio Fools Heavy Rescue 101 training event. For the 7th year in a row this event has grown bigger and better. This year firefighters from 8 states were represented. In this post I’m going to share a few pictures and a brief training description specific to school bus extrication.

It really is amazing how unpredictable the fire service is because yesterday a bunch of us trained at a huge grain elevator complex with no wind and 90 degree temperatures, then later in the evening we were on Lake Erie in the fire boat searching for a missing person. The importance of constantly adding to your first due tackle box through training will keep you prepared for the next call. The rest of this post includes some of the training scenarios we had set up at the farm rescue training hosted by the Northern Ohio Fools and Ehove Career Center.
