Extrication station rotations focus on stabilizing the vehicle in its physical orientation, providing new and modified old extrication techniques for gaining access to patients. The emphasis is on making every movement, cut, and relief count in the “Art of Making Space” quickly and efficiently. The systematic approach focuses primarily on using hand tools–mechanical, electric, or pneumatic–to illustrate the following objectives: seat displacement/removal, door displacement/removal, maxi doors or side blow-out B-post displacement/removal, dash displacement, push/lift roll steering column displacement, pull third door conversions hood, trunk access and removal, and lock mechanism bypass through floor-board access. ALL LEVELS
