Currie Solutions recently joined with Scottish Fire and Rescue Service for Heavy Rescue Operator Training in Dumfries.
Over 27,000 people were killed or seriously injured in the UK during 2017 due to road traffic accidents therefore our rescue services need to be kept up to date with the latest features in our vehicles and develop the skills needed to deal with these situations.
The training involved setting the scene where a car had driven into the side of the trailer and managed to be wedged underneath the trailer bed. The team then had to safely remove the casualties from the vehicle, which included using hydraulics to remove the doors, lift the front dash and remove the roof to remove all 3 casualties who were trapped within the car safely.
Great to see a member of our Haulier Partner Team making public safety a key priority. Well done Team Currie.
