Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

While we all teach about patient management in our vehicle rescue programs, how many of you do the following:
- use hard protection (shatterproof barrier) between tool work and the patient/interior rescuer? In training and on the street
- use edge PRO (sharp edge protection) If so what do you use?
- What do you use for patient packaging?
- Do you use any protective devices for you patient during the extrication process (safety glasses, hearing protection,etc) ? If so what is it?

Let's hear about it fellow rescuers!
