Series Links: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

Phase 4 requires movement of the dashboard, instrument panel and firewall. In this final rescue phase, cuts are made in the firewall structure and pushing, spreading, pulling or lifting equipment is used to simultaneously move or lift the dashboard, firewall, steering wheel, steering column and pedals away from the simulated front-seat occupants. This scenario is ideal for a hard-impact frontal collision.
