Complex Extrication H.O.T. Class was held at Legacy Towing on Fox Pass Cutoff in Garland County earlier this month.

Firefighters from different jurisdictions around Arkansas got hands on training with many different tools to learn how to remove enough of the vehicle to safely extricate patients from wreckage in the fastest way possible.

The class started indoors with discussion on how to use different tools such as halligans, axes, pry bars, reciprocating saws, and hydraulic tools that were provided by Ricky Still and Mike Smith of TNT Rescue.
