Shredding vehicles, saving lives: Firefighters practice victim extraction skills
Airman 1st Class Nicolas Rose, a 2nd Civil Engineer Squadron firefighter, looks for access points during an accident victim extraction exercise at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., July 7, 2016. Access points were identified to remove the rear hatch allowing access to victims in the back of the vehicle. Larger vehicles, such as minivans, provide additional challenges when extracting victims, and removing the rear hatch provides a more efficient way to remove victims while minimizing danger to first responders.
