About this event:
OFA RECRUIT CLASS ONLY!
During this course, students will be introduced to the various stages of automobile accidents and learn how to safely and efficiently navigate through these stages in a team environment. You will learn how to identify and isolate potential hazards to both you and the patient. We will focus on Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS) and the hazards that these systems pose to todays firefighters. Systematic scene management approaches coupled with an assortment of stabilization and glass management techniques will have you ready for day two!
You and your crew will go through step by step training evolutions on the safe use of heavy hydraulics equipment such as cutters, spreaders and rams. The afternoon portion of the day will include real time staged scenarios for you and your crew to tackle! Space is limited to ensure personal attention for each student and lots of hands on tool time.
