Training Opportunity - Farm Extrication & Machinery Entrapment Symposium, AVEA

MAY 26 & 27, 2018


The Alberta Vehicle Extrication Association (AVEA) and Penn State College is pleased to announce that we will be Co-hosting the 2018 Farm Extrication and Machinery Entrapment Rescue Symposium, May 26, 27, 2018 @ Olds College 4500 50 St, Olds AB.

The Alberta Vehicle Extrication Association (AVEA) is a Not for Profit functioning organization that is committed to contributing to the reduction of injury and deaths of all Albertans involved in transportation and related emergencies; and to enhance the health and safety of all of our emergency responders and to assist all of our members in achieving those commitments within their local communities.

This learning symposium will provide an occasion for firefighters from all over Alberta to participate in and witness Farm Machinery extrications and engulfment scenarios. Participants of this symposium will have the opportunity to be involved in workshops that demonstrate “Stabilization & Extrication of patients engulfed in Farm implement machinery such as combines, tractor rollovers and grain bin engulfment props” using
standard equipment found on a typical rescue truck. Many emergency departments, as a result of the Farm Extrication and Machinery Entrapment Rescue course, will benefit from the new techniques learned and tools used to improve their rescue skills and prehospital care management.
