Extrication

Oops 002

There are many reasons for motor vehicle accidents; wreckless drivers, failure of vehicle equipment, inclement weather, driving under the influence, just to name a few.  Many times the people in the vehicle become pinned or otherwise trapped.  We use specialized tools to cut and pry the metal from around a person so that we can get them extricated so that Cheatham County EMS medics can tend to any injuries and provide transport to the hospital.

Our members get certified in vehicle extrication through the Tennessee Association of Rescue Squads.  We get additional training and recertification at least every 2 years.
