Ok now I going to ask you a question. Are you saying we still could of cut the whole roof off and slid it out but we should of did it from the inside out.

Like first open the back or side, get in and cut everything off and slide the roof.

Or I thought about it over and over you said not to cut the B post. Were we aloud to cut a V into the roof at all posts and then slide the roof out. This way all the posts would still have been attached to the roof we would never have cut any of them.

Also we thought I should of stead on the roof as it was bening pulled out and could of been doing CPR on the dummy. What is the best way we could of done the roof removel and won. You let us know and I bet we will be able to do it like clock work.

But we still say if we were on the highway and the car was on it's roof like it was up there we would do it the same as we did.

Let me know which is the best way to do what we did.

Pete, I thought your page would be full of information on extrication. Slow down and start feeding all the good stuff to us. The course you guys put on at our Department (Mira Road Vol. Fire Dept. was top notch, it's the best training we have seen in this area. Keep up the good work..
