Company 3 MVA Drill – CFD Training Facility - May 19, 2024

Fire crews from Company 3 recently sharpened their MVA entrapment skills.  Crews worked scenarios using Jaws of Life tools, our high-pressure air bag system, and specialized Rescue Jacks to free multiple simulated patients trapped in an MVA.  Each crew of firefighters had to work as a team to prioritize each rescue.  The second portion of the drill was a tour of an electric vehicle and training on recently purchased EV immobilizer tools.  Once one of these new EV immobilizers is deployed, it prevents any electric vehicle from suddenly starting and moving forward during a rescue scenario.  These new EV immobilizer tools are now in service on each Engine.  The drill was well attended by our firefighters and coordinated by our Officers. Well done! (Photo’s by Firefighter, Tyler Reardon)
