The Advanced Auto Extrication Extravaganza scheduled for May 16 & 17 has been postponed due to the ongoing pandemic.

Bergeron Protective will have Rescue 42, Inc.struts there. TNT Rescue Systems, AMKUS Rescue Systems and Paratech Fire & Rescue Equipment will also be on-hand. If you’re in the market for some extrication equipment, or just want to test drive whats out there, this is the weekend for you.
Evolutions may consist of various airbag and cribbing scenarios, stabilization and extrication of vehicles on their roofs and sides, under-ride and over-ride evolutions, tunneling, 3rd door evolutions, and multiple advanced scenarios such as confined space extrication.
Program will be a Saturday morning lecture at Tamworth Fire/Rescue 132 Chinook Trail in Tamworth. Hands-on evolutions will be Saturday afternoon and all-day Sunday at Ricker Auto Salvage, 112 Maple St in Tamworth.
