ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ – Members of the Atlantic Highlands First Aid & Safety Squad gathered on a beautiful Saturday morning to make a wreck out of a car during an extrication drill.
The drill, part of the squad’s regular training program, was designed to let both new and senior members experience working with the organization’s extrication and stabilization equipment in a non-emergency setting.
Chief Richard Huff (C) prepares to cut the passenger door off of a Saturn, while squad president Jerry Pandolfo (l) and member Bill Mount (r) look on.
“Removing injured patients from mangled wrecks is part of our mission,” says Richard Huff, chief of the Atlantic Highlands First Aid & Safety Squad. “Using a vehicle generously donated by a borough resident, we were able to duplicate a variety of crash scenarios ranging from removing the roof to multiple vehicle lift procedures.”
The drill began with an in-classroom presentation on using the Res-Q-Jack stabilization and lifting system, followed by a brief outline of the way the multi-hour drill would unfold.
