Extricating drivers and passengers at motor vehicle collisions, often with serious injuries, requires
firefighters using specialized tools and techniques to remove the vehicle from around the patient.
With an increased use of lightweight high strength steel & carbon fiber structure components in newer
vehicles, airbags, computer controlled security and alternate fuel/hybrid systems, firefighters need
maintain their proficiency in vehicle design, components and associated extrication techniques.
