Local Companies Participate in VRT Drill at Station 62 6/7/2005

   On June 7, 2005 during our weekly training Ridge Fire Co.(62) and Norco Fire Co.(64) participated in a VRT Practice behind station 62. The Scene was setup with two Cars smashed underneath the middle driver’s side and rear section of a school bus. Each car contained two seriously injured adults in the two front seats, and the bus contained six children with minor injuries. All parties were trapped in their vehicles. Rescue personnel split into two teams and each took a car. Personnel had Rescue 62, Rescue 64, and Engine 64-1 to use at their disposal. Before any extricating began, the school bus and each car needed to be stabilized using wooden cribbing. Once that was established both teams began extricating the victims from the cars by using the hydraulic spreaders, “O” cutters, and extendable Rams to lift or remove the cars’ roof. Some side access was also made to make removing the victims easier and safer for personnel. Once extrication on both cars was complete rescue personnel split into two teams again and began making access to the bus. Access needed to be made through each side of the bus because the front and rear doors not accessible in this scenario. Each team used a variety of Air hammer tools, Sawzall, and Hydraulic tools to cut two openings in the bus shell. Once access was made all parties were extricated the scene was broken down and rescue was evaluated. Also West End Ambulance Substation (MICU 1-67) attended the training and watched over the rescue and rescue personnel for signs of exhaustion from the high heat and humidity. The Ridge Fire Company would like to thank all who attended and participated in the drill.
