RAVENA, NY - The Ravena FD held a vehicle extrication drill on July 26th to test out their new extrication equipment. The department received the equipment that was new to them and had only been used as demo equipment for a company previously. They received Holmatro rescue tools consisting of one cutter, one spreader and one combo tool. These new tools will be used in addition to their current extrication equipment on Rescue 26-40. The drill allowed members to test out the new equipment and teach newer members about vehicle extrication.
