Mock Crash Provides Training For Emergency Workers

This is a test, it is only a test of local emergency service personnel. That was the message local fire and rescue, ambulance and law enforcement workers delivered to bystanders at an accident at the Scotland County Fairgrounds last week.

The crash scene was an elaborate training service for local emergency workers.

This type of training is something we hope to do on a regular basis, said Scotland County Ambulance Director Brad Williams. We want to train together with all of the public service agencies. In real-life situations, we will all be involved so it is good to train together.

The scenario involved a motor vehicle that crashed into a utility pole, downing a live electric line, which sparked a fire. The fire and rescue workers disconnected the power line and quickly doused the fire before going to work with the jaws of life to extricate the victims.

Law enforcement officers were busy securing the accident scene. They also were forced to deal with a pair of intoxicated bystanders that made the job more difficult.

Once the victims were extricated from the vehicle, ambulance personnel began administering first aid and preparing the victims for transport to the hospital.

All of this was done under the watchful eye of Williams.

This is more of a critique process than a test, Williams said. We use the training to see if there are some areas that we can improve on.
