Vehicle Extrication Training
Throughout the month of April, Deep Gap Fire will be training on the topic of vehicle extrication. On Tuesday, April 3rd, we were joined by our partners at Watauga Medics and Watauga Rescue Squad for a training exercise to encompass EMS with rescue. DGFD has many specialty tools and equipment for handling vehicle accident incidents where patients may be pinned or entrapped inside of a vehicle.
Fun Fact – Deep Gap Fire Department was the first rural FD in the county to start utilizing the ‘jaws of life’ tools!
