Members of the Second District Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad recently participated in a vehicle extrication drill, which included patient care scenarios. This training exercise was designed to help enhance the skills of the first responders, who are responsible for handling emergency situations and saving lives.

During the drill, the first responders had the opportunity to practice their skills in a controlled environment. The exercise involved a simulated vehicle accident with trapped occupants. The firefighters worked together to extricate the victims from the vehicle, while the emergency medical services members provided patient care and assessed the injuries. The team also had the opportunity to learn about the latest techniques and tools used in vehicle extrication and patient care.

The drill was a success, with the team demonstrating excellent skills and teamwork. The experience will help prepare the first responders for real-life emergencies, where quick and effective action can make all the difference in saving lives.
