Ford Maverick

The 2022 Ford Maverick loaned to the Hurst folks was the star of the extrication show at FDIC. The Maverick was no match for the Hurst tools and the man that makes these vehicles available, Dennis Lark, was pleased with the destruction. The Maverick is available as an ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) vehicle and an FHEV (Full Hybrid Electric Vehicle). Below is an image from Ford’s 2022 Maverick Hybrid Emergency Response Guide.

Boron Extrication

If you notice, the Hybrid battery pack is on the passenger (RHS) of the vehicle. If you take a look at the image below, you can see the rocker on the RHS is reinforced to protect the battery pack. You can find more information about the different steels used in the rockers and floor pan here.

SFR had the pleasure of hosting one of our regional response partners at an acquired structure in town this morning. Crews sharpened their shoring skills in a partially collapsed structure, making it safe to search for survivors. Practicing skills with our regional response partners better prepares all of us to respond to large scale disasters as well as smaller incidents that can impact our community. #beready #bettertogether
