May 14, 2019 - Allamuchy Fire Department covers miles of roadway within Allamuchy Township, including 10 miles of route 80. Unfortunately form time to time, we get dispatched to rather serious accidents, and some of which involve entrapment's.
On Tuesday night, the entire fire department was trained by Instructor Steve Jason in Vehicle Rescue - an advance extrication course - and in 2 weeks, the department will be fully certified as Extrication Technicians. The course involves several nights of lecture and hands on training, as well car accident scenarios involving trapped victims in which the members of the department need to utilize their tools and skills to quickly, safely and efficiently extricate the trapped parties.
Great accomplishment by these members putting the hours in to get thru the training. And a big shout out to our instructor for providing the time!
