Big Rig Towing Fire Fighter Training

Every season spring & fall Big Rig Towing donates there time and trucks to help the firefighters train for some of the most serious parts of their job. Fire fighters and towing companies often join forces at accident scenes where heavy equipment or big rigs are involved with personal automobiles. Often the two services have to work in tandem to lift heavy trailers, cabs or machinery to rescue victims pined underneath.

Big Rig routinely spends these weekends to ensure both their team and the firefighters they work with on scene know how to operate together in case of an emergency.

Call us to find out if we can support your ongoing training.

Sometimes You Gotta Be Lucky

Sometimes you just gotta be lucky. This rig used up lottery luck when it ended up hanging from an overpass near Lake Louise.

Fortunately no one was injured and flying debris from the trailer missed a passing freight train.

Big Rig Towing was called to the scene and was able to haul the damaged rig, using it’s seventy five ton rotator, back onto the highway so it could be loaded onto a flat deck and taken back to Calgary.

Fire in The Hole

It’s never good when a fire breaks out in your trailer. What ever the cause the best case scenario is that no one gets hurt.

The fire in this trailer totally devastated it’s cargo and destroyed the trailer itself. Actually burning through the side before it could be contained.

This is when you really need a 75-Ton Rotator to get the job done.

Big Rig Towing made short work of lifting the disabled trailer and getting it on to a flatbed for transport.

Give us a call to find what other heavy lifting jobs Big Rig Towing can accomplish with this equipment.

When this forklift decided to try and escape through the floor of this trailer Big Rig Towing was called to bring their 75 Ton Rotator to give it a lift. After making an adjustment to the roof of the trailer the Rotor made quick work of getting the forklift out and back to work.

Against The Grain

This is not the way to off load grain. Big Rig Towing was called out to separate these tow trucks and handle the clean up of a significant amount of grain spilled in the right hand lane of the highway.

Big Rig Towing is constantly honing their clean up skills and can handle dangerous goods as well as the occasional grain spill.
