White Rock Fire Department officials recently bought a new set of extrication tools to help residents trapped in vehicle accidents, reports McDonald County Press.
Firefighters worked to secure two bids for the equipment. Hurst and TNT Rescue provided bids.
TNT Rescue Systems gave the department the opportunity to look at the vehicle extrication tools in-depth.
The set is comprised of two different tools that enable one firefighter to open the door while the other firefighter can flap back the vehicle’s roof, he said.
