North Florida Community College, Madison County Emergency Medical Services and the Madison County Fire Board are sponsoring a regional training event on Saturday, February 25, 2012. Fire fighters from Madison County and other jurisdictions will gather at the NFCC Public Safety Building, 325 NW Turner Davis Drive, in Madison to be trained in the latest patient extrication methods.
The classroom session will be from 9:00 AM until noon and this portion is closed to the public and media. All media representatives are invited to the practical exercises and demonstrations beginning at 1:00 PM. Ten vehicles provided by Madison Metals will be cut up by fire fighters practicing the skills necessary to get people out of wrecked cars in a quick but safe manner.
Video, still photos and interviews are encouraged. The event is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the skills that local fire fighters possess. Our first responders are an important component of rescue services.
