About the Event

The most common issue in dealing with advanced vehicle technology in extrication is trying to clarify misinformation that may be circulating around the emergency services communities. With this 4 hour presentation, TFACA dives deep into Modern age vehicles and thoroughly explains the importance of thinking outside the box! Responders must understand that some safety equipment intended to protect the driver and passengers actually creates further hazards and extrication issues for the rescuer. Departments and responders must adapt and change with advancing vehicle technology. Rescuers involved in vehicle extrication practices and procedures have an inherent responsibility to improve their skills and remain on the cutting edge of technology; self-motivation with continual training and education will provide the means to stay focused, while always looking for ways to improve. This program will cover a variety of topics including high-voltage batteries, advanced air bag protection systems, and a multitude of different metals and steels.
