Officers from Station 4 [Capt. McGowan, Lt. R. Whitmore and Sgt. J. Whitmore] hosted an 8 week course for MCFD firefighters interested in learning tool operations and vehicle extrication techniques utilizing Rescue 4. This course has been offered for over twenty years at Station 4 and has become a "rite of passage" for many. Last Friday was the final (practical) night of class, where firefighters were faced with a "mock" collision involving 3 vehicles. Members from both Station 4 and Station 2 took part in stabilizing, extricating with hydraulic tools and packaging/removing victims from the vehicles.
