Fire fighters don’t just show up with all the skills needed to engage in every situation. That’s because they don’t just fight fires. Firemen are called out to many different events like brush fires, structure fires, automobile accidents, life-threatening medical emergencies, non-life-threatening medical calls, false alarms and other hazardous situations. To be able to do this they have to have extensive training for all these emergencies.
One of the most stressful is automobile accidents that often involve victims trapped by crushed metal or other vehicles.
How do they prepare for this? Big Rig Towing lends a hand with the ongoing training of firemen and their own crews by helping to set up scenarios that accurately represent these types of accidents under controlled environments at one of the Calgary Fire Department’s training centers.
