MFD Training – Auto Extrication Exam with EMS

Implied traumatic injuries in photos – viewer discretion is advised. 

Firefighter’s completed their auto extrication exam this past week in association with Nipissing EMS. Crews responded to a mock 2 vehicle collision and needed to extricate 3 victims within an allotted time. 

The scenario was a drunk driver ran a stop sign and was t-boned by a dump truck. The driver, who was under the influence of alcohol sustained a traumatic brain injury, as well as a spinal injury. The passenger, who was heavily intoxicated not wearing their seat belt and not in their seat properly sustained a traumatic head injury and a complete amputation of their lower leg. The driver of the dump truck sustained minor injuries and was in shock. 

Firefighters and Paramedics worked hand in hand in treating and extricating the victims of the mock scenario. Training like this allows crews, management, and training division to gauge how proficient the firefighter’s skills are. 

The Mattawa Fire Department would like to thank the following, 

Tim Belanger for donating the car.

Naylor Services for donating the usage of the dump truck.

And Nipissing EMS for attending the training.

Assistance from these local businesses and municipal partners allows for accurate and high level training for the members of the Mattawa Fire Department.
