This past weekend, several members of the Croton-on-Hudson Fire Department traveled to Wharton, New Jersey for two full days of advanced vehicle extrication training.

The course - presented by the instructors of Northeast Squad Concepts - was attended by firefighters from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Maryland. On the first day, members reviewed the use of Rescue Air Bags, Cable & Chain winches, hoists and come-alongs, struts, cribbing, various saws, hydraulic tools and much, much more.

We extend our appreciation to the instructors at NESC for a solid weekend of excellent training to help us be better prepared for whatever we may be called to.
