Vehicle Extrication

Motor vehicle crashes (MVCs) are the second most common incidents that the fire service will respond to. Motor vehicles have been designed to keep the passengers as safe as possible, but sometimes this can impede rescue or injure fire service personnel. Every MVC is different. However, the fire service must be prepared for rapid management of the scene, hazard reduction, and rescue of the patient. This module will review vehicle management, patient extraction, rescue tools, and select the appropriate actions to take during a motor vehicle crash rescue. Content in this module is aligned with the NFPA 1001, Standards for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, Fire Fighter II: 5.1.1, “General Knowledge Requirements.”
