The Truro Township fire department serves the local community. As part of community outreach, they demonstrate some of their work. This demonstration is using heavy extraction tools to remove people from a vehicle involved in a car accident. This demonstration occurred at the Reynoldsburg Tomato Festival.
If you are lucky, you will never need to be a recipient of a firefighters services. However seeing what these people go through in the service of others is a great site to behold.
A staged accident is used to show the procedure that the firefighters go through to extract and transport.
They must wear their protective gear, even in the extreme heat as an accident can be a volatile situation and an electrical short can ignite many kinds of car fluids.
Life Flight takes off. The helicopter only requires a 75 square foot area to land/lift off.
