  • Rescue 42 DVD: Chapter 1 – Need for Stabilization

    Over the past few years there have been major changes in the vehicles that we see on the roads. Crashes that use to leave vehicles on their wheels are now resulting in more rollovers that leave cars on their sides, roofs or stacked in precarious positions. Passengers are being subjected to extreme bouncing and impact injuries particularly when not restrained by seat belts. The need for vehicle stabilization to protect these patients has never been greater.

  • Rescue 42 DVD: Chapter 13 – Application: Stacked Cars

    Using a 10000lbs rescue strap and a hook cluster, he quickly locks the cars together. This single strap completely eliminates the threat of ejection in about 15 seconds. The next step is to provide vertical support to the van. A chain is passed behind the pillars and hooked into the Combi-heads. We could easily add straps and struts as needed if the situation calls for it. Total time with two firefighters to complete stabilization was less than three minutes. Because […]

  • Rescue 42 DVD: Chapter 2 – Proper Stabilization

    Stabilization is about stopping and preventing unwanted movement. In the past it was relatively easy to stabilize vehicles that were not on their wheels. The surfaces of these cars were relevantly flat and were made of fairly thick steel, providing a solid surface against the ground and stability for extrication. The cars that are being manufactured today are more like beach balls. Sides and roofs are thin steel or plastic which act like springs when they roll and bounce. The […]

  • Rescue 42 DVD: Chapter 3 – Strut Evolution

    Rescue 42 has been manufacturing galvanized steel struts since the year 2000. These struts have and continue to be very successful, but steel has some problems. It is heavy, relatively weak and corrodes easily. In addition the galvanized coating is attacked by acids, such as battery acid. Steel struts also conduct electricity. The new TeleCrib Struts use advanced composite materials that are lighter, stronger, do not conduct electricity and are almost completely impervious to moisture and chemicals.

Do not feed the strap under the handle mechanism. To deploy the strap, simply hold it sideways and allow the strap to unwind. Unhook the hooks and hook them to your anchor points. Be careful not to overload the drum as this may cause the strap to jam. […]
