On May 27 and 28, 2016, the 2016 all Ontario Vehicle Rescue Challenge (Auto extrication) takes place at the Perth Fairgrounds, hosted by Drummond/North Elmsley, Tay Valley Fire Rescue, and the BBD&E Station.
“It’s an extrication challenge,” said Jean Richardson who is helping Aidan Ryan and Calvin Cooke to organize the event that will take place May 27 and 28 at the Perth Fairgrounds from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
Drummond/North ElmsleyTay Valley Fire Rescue and the BBD&E Firefighter’s Association would like to extend an invitation for all fire departments and the public to participate in the event. Any Fire Department (in Canada and the US) can submit a team to participate in the auto extrication challenge. All members of the public are welcome too attend the event as a spectator or help out as a volunteer. The event will take place at the Perth Fairgrounds located in beautiful Perth, Ontario. The event will feature tons of activities, auto extrication demonstrations, great food, vendors, antique fire trucks and much more!
There will be team scenarios and local scrap yards have donated more than two dozen cars to crush, but they’re still looking for old cars if you have one or two to spare. Tax receipts will be given.
Teams will be judged on their ability to perform, and team work, communication, Richardson said.
“There are three opportunities to perform including with limited tools, unlimited heavy hydraulics and rapid – meaning they will be talking to “patients” who will be on the verge of passing out.
The local fire and rescue team will not be competing in this event, as they are the hosts.
The Challenge will be limited to 15 teams. 6 people per team. All teams competing in the event will be registered with TERC. Visit www.terccanada.ca for details.
On the Thursday night before the event, there will be a learning symposium for invited guests.
