Extrication "Quick Tip"#27 (Cable Barriers)

It isn't uncommon for entrapments in my response area to involve guardrails. This common occurrence was covered in Extrication "Quick Tip'' #23. Cable barriers are not common to my part of the country. However, there are many misconceptions to the emergency response to entrapments involving them. Here is some great information from Minnesota DOT covering the emergency response to cable barrier systems. It covers basic cable systems and a quick guide to the mitigation of emergencies involving them. Take the time to familiarize with the barriers in your response areas! Here is the link to the MDOT site. https://dps.mn.gov/divisions/sfm/programs-services/Documents/Respon....
