    Default uh...

    We just had out first explorer cadet fire schools here in Illinois and the cornel was going around asking if there was anything we wanted to do next year and he said we are going to a auto extrication classroom because you have to be 18 to work with all the stuff you use with extrication. The dealio might be different in other states i duno!

    I think that there is another post in this forum, Explorer spec. that talks abou this.

    But for the sake of posting again instead of taking the time to drudge it up...

    As most have said, all the way with training, no such luck on a real scene.

    we allow our explorers to operate the tools only on training ground, however if needed everyone of our explores could operate without a problem

    Last fall, I took part in a hydraulic tool demonstration from Holmatro, Hurst/Centaur, and TNT. Got to cut up a few cars by myself. This Saturday, we are having a class about agricultural extrication. Either taking part in that, or riding the engine that is going to be there for stand-by and first out for any calls we get.

    If any of your posts are looking for information on techniques, there is a great video availible for FREE from Amkus. Just log on to their website and they'll mail it to you for free. Myself and one of our Exp Lt's checked it out the first night i got it. We plan to use it at an upcoming meeting. Also they will send you literature about their products, even though you might not run amkus it is some good demonstration stuff.

    our manuel says we can do anything at a fire scene except enter the hot zone. That being said we cant do didily shyte pretty much. We are gophors. We will get the traing and get to cut up stuff, but we live in a afulent (sp) community. When teh shyte hits the fan at a scene and they find out a explorer cut them out, we are dead meat. So that being said, we do it in training, and may hand them the tools, but never operate them. Also we are not allowed to use any ladders at this time (which sucks) due to a smal problem with a clause in our city paid for insurrance plan.
