Clinton High Firefighter II Program Trains for Vehicle Extrication

February 9, 2023

Clinton High School (CHS) Students in the Firefighter II class took part in a Basic Vehicle Extrication class as part of their certification.

Students learned how to identify different vehicle components and construction methods as well as different techniques used to access victims. A junk car was brought in and students had to demonstrate how to use all the different extrication tools that are on the fire truck.

According to class instructor, Greg James, “Students were surprised at how easily the power tools could take the car apart.”

The CHS Firefighter program is in its second year of being offered as an option for students at Clinton High School. The program works closely with local City of Clinton firefighters and offers students several certifications upon completion.
