This Brotherhood event will focus on the Northeast Truck Culture by discussing operations and storytelling from fire duty cities in the Northeast. A night of education and comradery, this is a can’t miss event.
The New England FOOLS along with Tamworth Fire/Rescue are proud to deliver a weekend of hands-on auto extrication that will provide personnel with an in-depth description of vehicle construction and components of New Vehicle Technology, scene safety, vehicle stabilization with multiple devices, lifting operations, electric and hydraulic tool operations.
The event will be SATURDAY & SUNDAY NOVEMBER 16TH AND 17TH.
Evolutions will 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.
