Newbury Firefighters and EMTs participated in vehicle extrication training on Monday, July 30. The members worked in teams to gain access to patients trapped in vehicles using the Department’s rescue extrication equipment. The patients were then removed from the vehicles and assessed by EMTs, who then developed a transport and treatment plan.
