Extrication Training

HRFD CRUNCH TIME

In 2011, Lt. Mike Huffman organized and started an annual HRFD Crunch Time Extrication Learning Symposium and Challenge. The annual Challenge continues to be held the last weekend in September at the Station Three Training Facility.

Chief Don Shoevlin says, “We wanted to target the new firefighters. It is important that we offer training and develop these new individuals. We are responsible to give them the knowledge and the tools to do the job at the highest level of professionalism, confidence and safety. The purpose of this challenge and those we host in the future is to develop the skill of firefighters to become the best that they can.” Lt. Huffman adds, “Everyone is a winner because they leave with knowledge and experience.”
