Anyone have a hybrid vehicle SOG in place?

We had the same problem. I took a haligan bar and bent the hood back and raised it up enough so we could use are hydralic cutters on the hood lock and assembly cutting both of them and opening up the hood. We have done this in training and it has been working for use. Give it a try in training first to see if it works for your department.

Did anyone catch Ron Moores web cast on the tests experiment done on ultra high strength steal? It had a lot of good info on this steal and it's location on the more common vehicles on the road today. It also showed some tips on how to deal with it. (Sorry to fireengineering for commenting on a competitors web cast, but it is a very good training article and heads up to all.)
