Rescue Stabilization Training
Monday, April 14, 2014

On Monday, April 14th 1900 hours the active crew of the Cochranville Fire Company and Keystone Valley Fire Department (Station 8) met at Null’s Towing for a night of rescue stabilization training. This training was planned in coordination of the two company’s officers. The night began with a safety briefing and then the participants were divided into three working groups made up of members from each company. Nulls had staged three vehicles to present the crews with the different style stabilization situations that we would encounter on the street. They consisted of a car on its side, one on the roof and a pickup with the rear bumper on a jersey barrier. During the drill crews used the cribbing, highlift jacks, and airbags off Rescue 27. Other equipment utilized to accomplish the evolutions was Station 8’s Junk Yard Dog and Rescue 42 struts. All crew present worked through the three stations receiving a review of the skill and for some new knowledge on the art of stabilization. There was a large turn out by both company’s youthful membership showing the strong growth in both organization to prepare for the future. Thank you to the over 40 participants that turned out for this training and to Keystone Valley for participating in this joint training venture. Units: Rescue 27, Engine 27-2, Utility 27 Mutual Aid: Rescue 8, Tac 8, Engine 8-1, Ladder 8
