Auto Extrication Drill

Reserve Hose is always prepared to hop into action when time is the most critical. Auto accidents are one of our most challenging and time sensitive operations. The rescue team must quickly assess the situation and act with almost surgical precautions in these types of incidents.

Scene safety is of utmost importance and any vehicle must first be stabilized to ensure the protection of all participants. At the same time, patient evaluation is the top priority. The EMS crew requires swift access to the vehicle compartment and the space to perform necessary first aid.

We have all the tools required, including the jaws of life, saws and glass cutters to remove doors, hoods, roofs and windshields. Whatever is essential to perform extrication and allow transport to a medical center.

On this night, our crew worked all the facets of this situation and came away with a great understanding of what can be accomplished by communicating and working together to complete this essential training.

Reserve Ladder 6 - Operations Training

Reserve Hose is one of three fire companies in West Seneca that runs a ladder truck in its fleet. Our Sutphen manufactured rig has a reach of 100 feet, holds 400 gallons of water in its tank and can operate with a crew of six firefighters.

This month we put it through its paces by hooking into a water source (hydrant), staging at our scene location and having the operator work the panel to get water to the bucket. The two person crew could then manipulate the ladder into position and open the two hose lines to douse the fire.

These practice sessions allow our crews the ability to perfect all the specific activities necessary to conduct a smooth and efficient operation on the fire ground.
