Each crew on all three of Henderson Fire Department shifts participated in an extrication class at their training facility over three days. The classes covered various situations and a lot of tips and techniques to help personnel more efficiently mitigate vehicle operations involving entrapment. Crews cut up 16 vehicles during the training. They also trained on a new device being added to their Kodiak Stabilization Systems used on some of their apparatus. This new device has a hand crank that allows vehicles to be lifted up to 14 inches using their existing stabilization kits. The class instructors were from Howell Rescue Systems and P&L Rescue Service.
