Firefighters had the opportunity to work side by side with company representatives, testing and evaluating each brand’s performance. Not only did this training session allow firefighters, both experienced and new, to familiarize themselves with different extrication techniques, but it also served as a platform to assess the advantages offered by different brands, models, and types of equipment.

Constantly seeking ways to enhance operational safety and efficiency, the SBCoFD Apparatus & Tool/Equipment Committees actively scout for innovative technologies and equipment.
