This drill features a scenario that will challenge the most talented and well trained rescue team. As a company, discuss how your department would respond to and manage this incident using the extrication and rescue tools available to you during these types of operations.
Your company is dispatched to a report of a car vs. building auto accident. The vehicle has hit a single-family dwelling that was occupied at the time of the incident. The driver is still in the auto, is unconscious, and the vehicle is resting partly inside and partly outside of the home. Extrication will be needed to remove the victim from the front seat of the car since the steering wheel and dashboard have collapsed onto the victims lap. Access to the driver's door is limited by the side of the house. Police are on the scene and with bystanders, are beginning to search the interior. On arrival, you hear and smell a natural gas leak from an unknown location. Use your local SOPs to develop a step-by-step initial action plan for this incident.
