Company 2 Extrication Drill September 6, 2001 Captain Tom Bernard Jr. Lt. Jeff Silver Lt. Jeff Bernard
Scene Operations Size Up –Outer/Inner Circle –Working Zone, Staging Zone, Command Zone, Outer Perimeter Hazard Mitigation Vehicle Stabilization Patient Stabilization Disentanglement
Scene Safety Personal Protection Equipment Turnout gear Helmet Gloves Eye protection Blood borne pathogens –Awareness, prevention, decontamination
Hazards Fluids –Gasoline, oil, coolant Downed electric wires & other utilities Traffic Blood borne pathogens Undeployed Air bags Weather, Time of Day Vehicle movement Sharp objects Broken glass
Hazard Control Speedi-dry on all fluids Precautionary hoseline stretched Vehicle wheels chocked Lighting Apparatus Positioning Battery disconnection – negative side first –See if you need it first Pad/cover sharp edges
New Vehicle Technologies Side impact air bags –Curtain from roof line –In B posts –In Door –In Seat Knee Air bags Seat belt pretensioners – with pyrotechnic Hybrid vehicles – gas and electric combos
5, 10, 20 Rule for Undeployed Airbags 5 inches away from a non-deployed side airbag. 10 inches away from a non-deployed front airbag (Steering Wheel). 20 inches away from a non-deployed passenger front (dash) airbag. Disconnect battery – negative side first
Types of Tools We Use Hydraulic (fluid powered) –Spreader, Ram, Cutter, Combi-tool –Port-a-power –Steering wheel cutter Pneumatic (air powered) –Chisel –Socket and impact –Wizzer Saw –Reciprocating windshield saw –Air bags Hand Tools –Chock, step chocks –Windshield Saw –Spring loaded center punch –Seat belt cutter –Battery cable cutter –Chains and come-alongs –Wrenches and sockets Electric and Battery Operated –Reciprocating saws Sawzall - electric Dewalt - battery –Drills
Tool safety Always wear gloves Don’t put hands and fingers near cutter blades and moving cutting surfaces Tools may rotate and shift while working Don’t be afraid to ask for help in holding tool These tools are heavy – take a break and pass it on when you get tired
Types of Extrication Door removal (door pop) – most common Roof removal or flap Dash displacement Seat displacement Steering wheel cutting Pedals and stick removal Removal of all doors and posts
Post operations Decon personnel and tools from: –Automobile fluids –Biohards – blood Critique Critical Incident Stress Management Tool maintenance and storage
