6-13-13 Squad 1

For the month of June, Company 1's lead training officer, Captain Trevilian, chose to train members on vehicle extrication. The training was broken down into three portions. The first night was classroom based with officers speaking about a variety of vehicle extrication topics, scenarios, and tools. The second night allowed members to get a little more hands on experience by demoing the tools on the Wagon and Squad, which run first and second out on MVCs, respectively. Members began the night by watching some videos from tool manufacturers on the use and then went and pulled them off the trucks. All members demonstrated proper use and basic knowledge of each extrication tool in preparation of future use on calls and the final training night.
