Vehicle Extrication Training Drill

On Tuesday, November 15, 2016, members of OMVFCo held a vehicle extrication training exercise.  Members practiced stabilizing an overturned car; removing doors that are pinned shut; a roof roll to allow access to a trapped patient; and moving a dash board if it is compressing a victim.
