T3 Training: Stabilization
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter

By East Brandywine Fire Company
May 22, 2019

On Wednesday evening May 22nd the East Brandywine Fire Company volunteers participated in vehicle rescue training. This training primarily focused on vehicle stabilization utilizing both cribbing and struts.

Prior to that hands on component of evening, Training Officer Chris Keen reviewed an article from Fire Engineering Magazine that explained cribbing very well, "Cribbing is one of the most frequently used and essential tools during rescue operations and is considered to be among the strongest means of support. Gravity is inescapable; thus, cribbing is used to transfer the weight of a load into a "footprint" and provide a simple temporary support during rescue operations."

Special thanks to Millers Automotive in Downingtown for allowing our team to use their facility and also for taking the time to set up a crash scenario.
