Stafford Vehicle Rescue Technician Course 2019
Checkout the pictures from the Vehicle Rescue Technician class in Stafford and Quantico. This 3-day course teaches advanced rescue techniques when dealing with heavy vehicles (large trucks, buses, etc.). It is based on utilizing heavy wrecker to re-position the heavy vehicle off the smaller vehicle to reduce extrication time to minutes. Make sure you also follow the Big Vehicle Rescue Facebook page.
Pictures are from Big Vehicle Rescue, John E. Burruss, and Danielle Celii.
This training scenarios involved lifting a 17,500 gallon capacity rail tank car. The total weight of the car was in excess of 82,600 lbs.
Military Truck Under-ride
A 23,000 lb military truck under-ride with the car inverted.
In the video below, Instructor Brian Sanzo teaching a group of students how to control roll and large trash truck using a brush truck’s 9,000 lb winch and a pair of Grip Hoists.
A controlled roll was done to get the garbage truck gently placed back on its tires with minimal motion.
One thing I like to use during training is a 50 ton rotator when available. The best time to get to know your heavy wrecker or tow operator’s equipment and knowledge is during training. In addition to adding another tool to our toolbox, when lifting heavy loads with equipment like Paratech’s Hydrafusion struts, a rotator can be a great redundant safety system on scene. Get to know your local operator’s capabilities.
