November Rescue Training (Airbags & Rescue Tools)

For our department’s November rescue drill, members tested and put to use our rescue tools (commonly referred to as Jaws of Life) and air bags. Air bags are put to service to lift heavy object such as a vehicle from a trapped person.

Fortunately, the Manchester Fire Department has not needed to put this equipment to  much use lately, but with slick winter roads approaching a refresher will help make sure both our tools, and our members, are ready to go when needed.
