When a victim of an automobile crash is trapped within their vehicle, it is imperative that the professionals sent to help them know what they’re doing.

That’s why members of the Morris Fire and Ambulance Protection Unit spent a few hours practicing rescue operations on an overturned car on November 25th.

Fire Captain Dave Weichen spoke about the practice scenario, where fire fighters must rescue a dummy from a pinned vehicle.

Weichen also spoke about the need to prioritize continued education within the department.

Weichen said moving quickly and safely is the most important part of a rescue. He said their goal is to get a victim out of their vehicle and to a medical center before one hour has passed from the moment of collision.  

The Morris Fire Department wanted to thank Greenway in Morris.
