Caddo Kiowa Tech Center provides Vehicle Extrication Training to first responders in the district

According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, road traffic crashes rank as the 9th leading cause of death with nearly 1.25 million people dying each year. An additional 20-50 million are injured or disabled. Fortunately for the communities in Caddo Kiowa Tech Center’s district, there is a strong partnership between the center and local rescue agencies to expand and improve rescue services to the district. Working alongside local fire departments and rescue workers, Caddo Kiowa Tech offers Vehicle Extrication Training throughout each school year.

Earlier this month, the training was held in Hinton, Oklahoma, and showed rescuers the latest techniques in emergency vehicle extrication. This training is crucial for preparing rescue workers to provide the best response for car accident victims in the region.
