This program is filled. If you would like to be considered in the event of a cancellation, please register indicating so.

June 30 – July 1- 2018
8:30 AM – 4:00 PM
Hosted by the Long Lake Fire Department

340 Willow Drive Long Lake, Minnesota

Large vehicle: Eighteen wheeler, tandem dump truck, car carrier, tow truck, cement mixer even a fire truck. All represent tens of thousands of pounds in motion. Not a problem until one hits something, over turns or something hits it.

These are not everyday incidents. Different than the car crash with minor damage, these incidents are manpower intensive and may require creative problem-solving skills for a favorable outcome. This program will review incidents involving large vehicles with best practices for size up, stabilization, hazard control, disassembly, extrication and patient removal. Hands on activities dominate this program!
