Road Crash Rescue Equipment
The Jaws of Life
Road Crash Rescue equipment is designed to assist emergency service workers in extricating a casualty from a crashed vehicle without causing further injury or stress. The equipment is designed to work quietly and quickly to cut the steel which entraps a casualty within a vehicle.
The tools which will be most often used will include the Cutters, Spreaders and Rams. Other items to assist in the extrication will include air bags, trim removal tools, glass catchers and stabiliser materials.
