The New Baltimore FD held an extrication drill on Monday, March 8th. The drill simulated a rollover crash with a vehicle on its side. Firefighters first worked to stabilize the vehicle and then went over ways to safely remove a patient from the car. Hydraulic tools were used to cut the roof from the car and methods were discussed on handling a patient to load them on a backboard.
