If you have ever taken the time to look through some of the ERG’s out there, you know how confusing the various hazards that late model vehicles present are. Nothing can replace solid training, but if you are not using Crash Recovery System at scene and in your training, you are putting yourself at unnecessary risk.
For the cost of a couple helmets, your agency can have detailed (vehicle specific) information on all of the hazards that exist at your vehicle rescue incidents.
This program gives us the confidence to dig into any vehicle on the roadway without hesitation!
There are VERY FEW reliable sources of information available out there… But Moditech is always spot on! Check out Moditech Rescue Solutions BV on Facebook and like their page. Order a copy of CRS here…http://moditech.com/ These guys know their stuff.
I’m not paid by this company, I’m putting this out there because I believe CRS is an amazing asset to the fire service. All of the top extrication instructors utilize this program, and there’s a reason for that.
Here are a few screenshots from the program… keep in mind that the program is completely interactive. You can click on any component and get details, including how to mitigate the hazard!
