Do YOUR firefighters know how to successfully extricate a victim from unusual situations?
The Islip Town Fire & EMS Museum and Education Center will be hosting the highly acclaimed "Man-vs-Machine" hands-on training class presented by PL Vulcan Fire Training Concepts LLC on Saturday, May 16th 2020. Designed for firefighters of all experience levels, this course will provide hands-on training on various methods to disentangle victims from a variety of unique and unusual situations. Evolutions progress from basic techniques (ring removal) to more complex including auger/press entrapments, impalements on fencing, victims under vehicles and hands stuck in machinery. Tips and "tricks of the trade" learned through real world experiences will be shared with students to further enhance their knowledge and skills set to deal with these "outside-the-box" incidents. Students will have ample hands-on practice time
at various skills stations (cutting/impalement/lifting, etc.) throughout the class sessions.
