This is just a drill! MarMac fire, rescue teams conduct extrication training


Firefighters removed the hood of a car Saturday morning during an extrication training session held in the McGregor Municipal Utilities parking lot.

McKenzie Leckliter, Jennifer Pazour, Sarah Ferrel and Dillon Thompson (left to right) volunteered to be victims for the extrication practice.

Firefighters work on opening one of the car doors.

EMTs attend to victim volunteer McKenzie Leckliter after she is extricated from one of the vehicles.

A firefighter begins work on removing the whole roof of one car.

The fire department usually cuts up at least one car each year, while the rescue squad does a training session like this or a river rescue each year.

EMTs now have better access to the victims.

Rather, it was the scene of an extrication training exercise, giving the MarMac EMS and fire department the opportunity to practice removing accident victims from damaged vehicles.
