Tuck’s Collision Offering Free Extrication Class To First Responders

Holmatro Rescue Equipment

On October 4, 2017, Tuck’s Collision, a member of the National Auto Body Council (NABC), will be delivering the latest in vehicle extrication technology to first responders across our community.

“First responders such as firemen require the most current vehicle information to be effective and save lives at the scene of an accident,” stated Stacy Tuck, owner of Tuck’s Collision. “FREE helps keep these individuals up to date, which is more important than ever given the rapid onslaught of advancements in vehicle design such as high-strength steels, advanced restraint systems, and multiple air bags. The growing popularity of high-voltage hybrid vehicles also makes a class like this a necessity.”

Late model vehicles, scheduled to be donated by local insurance companies, will be available for first responders to practice on, a true strength of the program since most fire departments don’t have access to such vehicles.

“This NABC-sponsored program is a perfect fit for our community and the excitement is building as the day of the program gets nearer,” added Tuck. “Local fire departments have indicated this kind of knowledge is much needed. We are honored to be able to deliver critical information to those who need it most. There’s been a lot of anticipation in our community so far, and we look forward to delivering it.”

Holmatro, an international rescue equipment manufacturer, will be present at the program displaying key products used to increase the speed at which occupants can be removed safely from damaged vehicles.
