CKTC’s Vehicle Extrication training is a huge success

No one wants to be in a severe car crash. However, if it happens, Caddo Kiowa Technology Center is doing its part to help train firefighters on vehicle extrication. CKTC recently held their Vehicle Extrication class. Expert trainers were on hand to work with participants on using different techniques and equipment, which gives rescuers practical hands-on exposure to the extrication tools that aid in freeing entrapped victims.

Vehicle extrication is the process of removing a vehicle from around a person who has been involved in a motor vehicle accident when conventional means of exit are impossible or inadvisable. A delicate approach is needed to minimize injury to the victim during the extrication (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle_extrication).

Several fire departments from across the district attended the training, bringing a total of 37 participants.

“I believe practically every community was represented, which speaks volumes about the importance of and demand for such courses. Our goal is to meet district’s needs, and classes such as Vehicle Extrication is vital to the people in the district,” stated Business and Industry Services Director Dr. Joe Ely.
