Vehicle Extrication Training

Training Update: Members of the Tacoma Fire Department participated in a valuable vehicle extrication training exercise this week. The purpose of this training was to enhance our ability to remove people trapped in vehicles at the scene of motor vehicle crashes.

The training included scene safety, basic vehicle stabilization, tool proficiency and numerous extrication exercises. The skills practiced during these drills increases our firefighters level of readiness for this type of low frequency/high risk response.
