One reason that the Heavy Rescue at the Bowling Green State University (BGSU) May State Fire School fills up quick are the instructors. The other reason is the Hands on training scenarios that are held during 3 days at the training site. BGSU-Water-Heavy-Rescue-Extrication-Rescue Almost every fire department has a small creek or stream running thru it or along a roadway. The question is, has your department trained on vehicle extrication with a vehicle in the water? The second question, do you have a cold water suit on the apparatus that you rescue tools are on?

Checkout the PARATECH HydraFusion Struts (HFS) in action lifting the concrete pipe so the rescuers can complete the extrication. BGSU-Paratech-Heavy-Rescue-Extrication

Among the instructors at the Heavy Rescue hands on training was Chief Hasenmeier from First Due Tackle.  You find more pictures on his Facebook Page and his rescue focused site First Due Tackle.

Paratech Virtual Workshop: Trench Advanced

Below is a great advanced trench presentation by leading industry experts. It kicks off with Paratech’s Nigel Letherby followed by MUSAR’s Chief Ron Zawlocki and professional civil engineer Craig Dashner. Craig works closely with Chief Zawlocki to bring the fire service real world knowledge to keep everyone on scene safe. Below is a description off his Linkedin profile of some of the work that he does with the fire service.

 I also volunteer my time working with a Ron Zawloki, a Fire Department Instructor, on the development and refinement of Trench Rescue Shoring Standards. So much of what has been taught to the fire service throughout the years was never reviewed by an Engineer, or was poorly designed, and much of it is a false sense of security and down right dangerous. Working with Ron, we are developing shoring systems that can be deployed rapidly, be flexible to different conditions and provide adequate safety for the victim and rescuers.


Make sure you checkout the full list of different videos available on the Paratech YouTube channel.
