All crews receive medical training numerous times a year both internally and in partnership with the County of Simcoe Paramedic Services to ensure that training goals are met and that skills are maintained. In addition, all firefighters are certified through Red Cross in standard first aid with health care provider level CPR.
All firefighters are trained in oxygen use, automated external defibrillators (AED), CPR, spinal immobilization, how to deal with deadly bleeds and several other life saving techniques. AEDs and medical bags are found on all trucks and apparatus.
The department uses many different tools to manage fire related incidents. Many of the tools we use double as every day tools that you may find around your home, garage or place of employment. Some of the tools are very specific to fighting fires.
In addition, the department uses four different hose sizes including: 38mm, 65mm, 100mm and 150mm.
The 38mm and 65mm hoses are used primarily as attack lines. The 38mm nozzle delivers 550 litres of water per minute and the 65mm nozzles delivers 1000 litres of water per minute.
The 100mm hose is used to move water from a fire hydrant to a fire truck or from fire truck to fire truck. The 150mm hose is commonly referred to as a suction or drafting hose. The hose is made from a non-collapsible material that will allow a fire truck to suck water out of a pond, pool, river or porta-tank when water is required in an area away from fire hydrants.
Motor Vehicle Collision Equipment
The department responds regularly to motor vehicle collisions. The severity of these collisions varies greatly from property damage to patients requiring extrication.
When responding to motor vehicle collisions it is often difficult to know the severity of the situation until crews are on scene. As a result, all calls are handled in the same manner until the appropriate level of care can be determined. Above anything else, scene safety is the primary concern of the department. The focus is to secure the scene and to ensure that the occupants involved are protected and that firefighters have a safe area to work. To improve the safety of firefighters, high visibility vest must be worn when operating on or near a roadway.
Depending on the severity of the incident, equipment can range from a broom to clear the roadway of debris, to the hydraulic cutters and spreaders commonly known as "the jaws of life" which is used to remove trapped victims from inside vehicles.
Another important tool used by firefighters at motor vehicle collisions is wood cribbing. Wood cribbing is used to ensure the vehicle is stabilized and safely secured for both the safety of the patient(s) and responders.
Additionally, firefighters may be required to use more specialized equipment such as stabilization struts and lifting bags. The lifting bags are activated by air pressure and are rated to lift different weights.
