Double Dipping

I was scheduled to work a shift at the fire house today, so I figured I'd bring a car with me so we could get some training in. We worked with a new member on stabilization basics for a little bit.

 

Once we took care of the basics we moved to more advanced scenarios. I raised the front of the car to simulate a car going up a guy wire so we could stabilize it with our struts.

After that I put it on its side and we went through some different scenarios based on calls we've had in the past.

When we got tired of looking at the car we cut it apart. It was a long day of training both on the fire side and towing.

Nice work. Are those stabilizing struts something your dept. purchased? The reason I ask is I built a set a few years back for a local F.D. that they still use today.  Was kinda curious how much they would have cost if they had to purchase them.

Ah yes. I bet they are pricey being fiberglass. the ones i made were 4140 aluminum with steel feet and attachments. It is a small low budget fire house so I thought I would put my fabrication skills to good use for them and save them some money.
