     Last week three shifts of fire fighters from the Bay City Department of Public safety spent time at Action Towing on State Street to get some hands-on training with their hydraulic rescue tools. Action Towing donated its facility and the cars for us to use.   The Fire Division utilizes Genesis Rescue Systems tools - however many people refer to these types of tools as the Jaws of Life (which is a different brand). Fire fighters used the tools - to strategically tear apart the cars just like they would if someone needed our help. We reviewed everything from the angle to park the fire engine and its wheels at a crash scene - to the dangers posed by undeployed airbags and electric vehicles. Not only are we working to help the people in the crash - we have to stay safe too. Fire fighters do this extrication training once a year.
