We would like to thank FF1 for the in-depth Vehicle Extrication class that they put together for us. We (Whippany Fire Department & Cedar Knolls Fire Department) learned a tremendous amount from the training and every minute was well worth it.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a vehicle accident happens occurs every 10 seconds and this is why we called in the experts to make sure that we’re on top of our game! We started off in the classroom on Tuesday night and then we continued all day Saturday at Pioneer Freight where we went through numerous vehicles during our hands-on training. We covered multiple scenarios that we will be confronted with, along with some of the challenges that new vehicles will bring (multiple airbags, hybrid/electric systems, stronger materials, etc). Here are some photos from the day.
