Fire Engineering Books: School Bus Extrication DVD
By Leigh T. Hollins, Battalion Chief, Cedar Hammock Fire Rescue, Manatee County (FL)
Basics aren't enough at bus accidents. That's why you need School Bus Extrication! Join Leigh Hollins as he explains the likelihood of school bus disasters, and guides you through the complex challenges you'll encounter on the scene of such accidents.
Do you think of young children in large, yellow vehicles when you hear the words "school bus"? Think again. School buses today come in a variety of sizes, and are used by everyone from church groups to river rafting outfits. These buses are on the road every day of the week, every hour of the day.
Responders who may be well trained and experienced at car and light truck extrication techniques will be confronted with a much different challenge at a school bus incident.
In this video you will learn:
- The potential for mass casualties
- The problems you'll face
- School bus types
- School bus construction
- School bus features
- Rescue and extrication techniques
- Incident preparation
