During the month of July the Norwich Fire Department has been training on stabilization, lifting and extrication at the Emergency Management Facility. Firefighters discussed the different options we have of lifting heavy objects and tried different methods using a bottle jack, air bags and the TL-9 in combination with the TNT spreaders. After lifting several loads, crews then began extrication removing the doors, roof and rolling the dash.
