Seconds can mean the difference between life and death and having the right equipment makes all the difference for first responders during an emergency.

In 2011, the Brockport Fire Department responded to 141 motor vehicle accidents, 11 of which required the use of hydraulic extrication equipment.

Due to the increased risk to trapped patients, whether it be in a motor vehicle accident or a person trapped in a piece of machinery, of a prolonged extrication, the Brockport Fire Department has invested in upgrading it’s equipment to the newest technology. This equipment will free a trapped victim more quickly and safely than the older.
