This Evening while our Company Directors met for their monthly meeting, Fire Members ran through some refreshers on Vehicle Rescue and went over newly equipped winch rigging bags on Engine 63-1.
Crew Members stabilized a vehicle on its side against another using Engine 63-1s front winch and rescue struts. Once the vehicles were stabilized a “patient” was rescued from a vehicle using our Hydraulic Rescue Tools.
Engine 63-1 now carries 2 identical rigging bags (pictured). The equipment in these bags was purchased from Null’s Towing in Cochranville, PA.
Thank you Captain Pfeiffer for setting these bags up, and conducting this training.
Equipment in each bag:
• (1) 20’ Chain
• (1) 10’ Chain
• (1) RTJ Cluster
• (1) “J” Hook
• (1) Rim Sling
• Misc Slings
