As part of their ongoing training, some of the members of the Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue Department had a chance to practice their skills in auto extrication, the process of determining the safest way to take an occupant of a vehicle out of danger's way or towards medical attention if required.

In a Social media post from Thursday on the PRFD Facebook page, a glimpse into some of the work required part of the training session is offered up.

Through the year, the PRFD is constantly upgrading their skills and training for whatever emergency response is required when the alarms ring at the First Avenue West Fire Hall.
