6:00 - 6:45 pm



During ExtricationFest! this session will be presented by Mr. Mitch Stewart. Mitch is the former Director of Training for Hurst and was assigned to the corporate office training site in Shelby, NC. He continues to serve as an Instructor and Paramedic in Union County, SC.


Initially attendees will learn specifically how a hydraulic rescue system operates and the associated requirements for proper operation. Thus they will understand the great importance of user testing and maintenance.


Following this information Mitch will present user maintenance information. This will allow folks to return to their agency and develop a schedule of operations that produces optimum condition of the tool, maintaining it ready for service.


Troubleshooting your system will be discussed along with the importance of both hydraulic flow and pressure measurement. Users will understand specifically what is required to maintain their system in the best possible condition of readiness.



Vendors have agreed to offer pressure testing of your power unit FREE during ExtricationFest!  If you’ve a concern with a specific power unit please bring it along to allow testing. This is a simple and effective procedure that will allow you insight into potential problems. This bonus will cover only pressure testing of a power unit during ExtricationFest! You may consult with the vendor for additional services.
