Heavy Rescue Training
 
By Fire Fighter/EMT Pieter Lucas
August 25, 2018
 

Members were invited by Lisbon VFC today to participate in a training involving heavy vehicles. Thanks to the Maryland Department of Transportation's donation of old buses, firefighters were able to take part in several rescue evolutions and learn more about the unique challenges that large vehicles pose. A commuter bus can weigh as much as 55,000 pounds, requiring the use of specialized rigging and equipment. Thank you to the Lisbon VFC for hosting this valuable training; the HCDFRS instructors; and Doug Walton for the pictures.
