Extrication Drill with the South Salem Fire Department for 06/25/18
 
By Vista Fire Department
June 26, 2018
 

This week's Monday Night Drill was "extrication" for our Firefighters and EMTs alongside the South Salem Volunteer Fire Department.

The "extrication" drill had our Vista Firefighters & EMTs alongside the South Salem Firefighters working on a two-car motor vehicle accident scenario. Vista & South Salem Firefighters practiced stabilization and extrication operations while Vista EMS personnel handled patient care. Motor vehicle extrication is the process of removing a person who has been involved in a motor vehicle accident when conventional means of an exit are impossible or inadvisable.

This type of training was a great opportunity to work with the South Salem Fire Department as the likelihood of working together during a motor vehicle accident with extrication is high. As neighboring Departments, both the Vista & South Salem Fire Departments try to train together in the event of a mutual aid response on a regular basis.
