This year at FDIC

4-Hour Evolutions: Monday and Tuesday, March 21-22
8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.

Advanced Car and SUV Vehicle Extrication NEW!
Lead Instructor: Battalion Chief Leigh Hollins, Cedar Hammock (FL) Fire Department
Participants will receive hands-on instruction about the newest, most advanced techniques for stabilizing vehicles and extricating victims from cars and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) using a wide array of hand and power tools. A four-station rotation provides students with a fast-paced, diverse extrication experience and plenty of “tool time.”

Responding to Incidents Involving Hybrid and Electric Vehicles
Lieutenant Jason Emery, Waterbury (CT) Fire Department
With the influx of hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) into the market and the nationwide release of two electric vehicles (EVs) in 2011, it is imperative that emergency responders, who are on the “front lines” of handling accidents, extrications, and fires, train to respond to incidents involving these vehicles. This workshop will help first responders stay on top of automotive trends in these technology areas and will provide the skills needed to safely respond to incidents involving hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and electric vehicles. Identification methods, vehicle systems, potential hazards, and response procedures will be addressed as well as the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf, the first two major entrants in the electrical vehicle market. This program is designed to familiarize all response personnel, from the first year probie to the seasoned chief officer, with how to safely work around HEVs and EVs at an incident.

Hybrid Safety for First Responders
Matthew .G Stroud, Owner/President, MGS TECH Incorporated
This workshop includes discussions about hybrid parts locations, high voltage hazards, power down procedures, and fire and submersion tactics. It will dispel myths and misinformation about these vehicles and operating around them. Learn about air bag (SRS) systems, what a hybrid is and how to identify it, basic electrical theory, parts location and identification, and the hybrid’s future.


Thanks for the info.

I see that Todd Hoffman of Scene of the Accident has his VX training on DVD now. 8 DVDs. I saw a sample of it at workingfire.com  This stuff is really the latest and also covers other stuff like hybrids, highway rescue scene setup, etc.
