Underride Extrication

Published

on

Heavy Vehicle Extrication is often personnel and equipment intensive. A great example, rescue companies from Lower Macungie Fire Department, Goodwill Fire Company No.1 of Trexlertown, PA-Station 25 and Alburtis Fire Department worked for about an hour to free victims of a crash Saturday morning when a vehicle went under the side of a tractor trailer and entrapped several occupants.  Underrides are often difficult but always make sure to ask for mutual aid early.
