I am currently 1st Lt of the Point Boro First Aid Squad. We handle all vehicle extrication in our town. I took over the training of our 15 member team last year, and have been revamping everything we do, with alot of emphasis on training. We do some kind of training at least once a month, including simply watching training videos, working on our rescue truck, simple in-house hands on drills. Weather permitting we train at the local junkyard. We use Holmatro hydraulic tools and Res-Q-Jack stabilization struts.
