Big Rig Course 1: (Technician, Specialty)           16 hours             Tuition $150.00 

 

Attendees will receive classroom and hands-on training using unique techniques with both light and heavy rescue equipment.

 

Classroom training will provide information on:

Air Bag Lifting Systems (High, Low Pressure and New Technology)

Timber Cribbing and Strut Support Operations

The 5 Step Discipline for Overturns and Underrides

 

Attendees will perform uncommon extrication techniques such as trunk tunneling and the “Pickup Truck Slice”.  Also, unique methods of stabilization using strut systems and “cradling” techniques will be practiced, knowing the equipment is within its Working Load Limits, thus enhancing safety for all involved.

 

Attendees will operate at very challenging, yet realistic scenarios featured during the hands-on session.  Such scenarios include a loaded cement mixer overturned on a car, a side resting car under a van trailer, bobtail underride, and a loaded garbage truck overturned onto a car.

Hybrid Vehicles:            

This training will provide the latest information and techniques for dealing with hybrid vehicles in both extrication and fire situations,

including:

Familiarization, low and high voltage shut down, sleep mode, key-less ignition, emergency response guides, technical extrication information and dealing with hybrid fires.
