eDRAULIC finds its way into THW.

Media block

 
The THW Forchheim, a local branch of the German Federal Agency Disaster Relief, supports the police and fire services in their rescue work on surrounding motorways and roads. Especially in the holiday seasons when there is a lot of traffic, the voluntary rescuers are frequently called to emergencies. With a new LUKAS rescue set and intensive training, the THW-teams prepared for upcoming challenges.

Local sponsors and supporters helped with donations to purchase the new equipment. That way, the urgently required new tools could be bought despite a small budget. The rescuers' choice fell on eDRAULIC tools because, without any set-up time for pumps and hoses, they are instantly ready for operation.
With unlimited reach of action in the field and considerably less weight on the vehicle, they are ideal for all kinds of scenarios on roads as well as offside.

Training for increased demands

Before the start of the holiday season, the THW-rescuers updated their skills and knowledge in a 2-day training. They learned the secure use of hydraulic tools, glass management and methods to patient orientated rescues.

In realistic scenarios, they worked on vehicles in different positions and different states of damage. And they successfully practiced new techniques of creating access such as the keyhole method through the trunk.

All parts of the training led to one goal: To gain routine for real emergencies!



Equiped for quicker rescues

Next to the practical experience, it is also the tools that made the THW-rescuers self-confidently face the holiday season with all its challenges.

After all, the new eDRAULIC set convinced with high mobility and full performance.

Its greatest advantage: On the job, setting up a motor pump is no longer necessary and rescuers can immediately extricate patients.
