Firefighters Bookstore Grows Vehicle Extrication Training Catalog

Huntington Beach, CAVehicle Extrication Emergencies are a leading category of response for fire and rescue personnel. Responding to these incidents is inherently dangerous because of vehicle traffic and many other hazardous conditions. Both the patient and responders’ lives depend on solid, up-to-date training in incident management, basic operational procedures, and knowledge of tools and techniques used to complete an efficient and effective extrication. It is critical that emergency responders are aware of hazards and how to control them at an extrication scene.

To the right we have some of the top Vehicle Extrication manuals that teach to the current NFPA 1001, 1006, and 1670 standards.
