    • Educator- RoadwayRescue
  • What are we going to talk about?
    • Technology
    • Operations
    • Trends
    • Summary
    • Q & A
  •  
  • NVT N ew V ehicle T echnology
    • Vehicle materials, components, construction and concerns that will directly impact emergency responders while providing emergency services and pre hospital care.
  • SRS S upplemental R estraint S ystems
    • Occupant protection devices
      • Airbags
      • Seat belt pretensioners
      • Roll over protection devices
      • Glazing
    • What do you feel is the biggest concern with vehicles of today?
    • Is an airbag “spent” if it has been deployed?
    • What methods, if any, can be used to ensure your safety at a vehicle related incident and or emergency?
    • Are there vehicles on the street today that do not make any noise when running?
    • Do the tool evolutions we’ve learned in the past work on today’s vehicles?
    A Question for you ……
  • Technology
  •  
  • DUAL STAGE
  • Side Impact Systems
  • Side Curtain Systems
  • Strip Roof Trim
  •  
  •  
  • Side Curtain - Deployed from another direction
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Pedestrian protection SRS
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Crush Zones
  • What tool Evolutions will be difficult? Does this look familiar?
  •  
  • Mag-Alum Structure
  •  
  •  
  • Take a look!
  • Fuel Additives
    • NOS for gasoline
    • Propane for diesels
    • Towing/performance additive
    • Fire/Crash related issues
  • Operations
  •  
  • Shut down
    • Each vehicle has unique emergency procedures-however-if you do the following 2 actions they will disable the HV circuit & disarm/discharge the SRS system(s):
      • Turn the key to the OFF position and remove the key and keep it AWAY from the vehicle
      • Disconnect the 12V battery (both + & -)
  •  
  • 40% of batteries live outside engine compartment
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Vehicle Pwr Button No Mechanical Key System
  • Where are the keys?
  •  
  • A Stabilization thought…
    • Ever thought about “run flat” tires..
    • Two thought processes
      • Solid insert
      • Stiffened sidewall
    • How low will the tire deflate now?
  •  
  •  
  • 70% of incidents
  • Hybrid 101
    • All hybrids start on electric power alone
    • Some travel on electric power alone up to certain speeds
    • HV power is direct current DC
    • Some hybrids also generate 110 AC
    • HV circuit is self contained – does not ground out to the vehicle chassis
    • Drivetrain power is computer controlled and managed
    • A crash and/or a change in voltage in the HV results in a shutdown of the HV system
  • Hybrid 101
    • All Hybrids have a HV drivetrain circuit as well as a normal 12v automotive electric system
    • Gas/Diesel side of drivetrain is load dependant
    • Even when the hybrid is shut down and secured there will ALWAYS be power in the HV battery
    • As emergency responders there is NO NEED to interact with the HV battery – leave it alone!
    • Crayola colors to remember >
    • Bright orange = HV power
    • Bright blue = “intermediate” HV power (GM)
  • Impact disarms Hi-Voltage
  • Stay away from BRIGHT ORANGE CABLE
  • Stay away from BRIGHT BLUE cable!
  •  
  •  
  • 07 CIVC GX
  •  
  •  
  • BI FUEL H2 & GASOLINE
  • Strategic Cutting Spacemaking
  • Use a good cutting shield
  •  
  • Side impact bars
    • more spreading & cutting may be needed
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
    • All Hybrid models have a guide for emergency responders to deal with various emergencies
    • How to shut down, extrication concerns, firematic & towing concerns
    ERG Emergency Response Guide
  • Training ….
    • What are we training on?
    • How are you training?
    • Do you use live patients as part of your training?
  • Trends ...
  •  
  •  
  • Material & Construction
    • Construction advances don’t prevent entrapment
    • Entrapped patients require aggressive management Sanson G, et al. Italy, 1999 ; Reines H D, et al. USA, 1988
    • Construction advanced do effect major injury Lie A, et al. Sweden, 2000 ; Segui-Gomez M, et al. Baltimore, 2002
  • A Post C Post 2007 MB S Class
  • Carbon Fiber Body Panels
  •  
  • B-Post reinforcement
  • B-Post reinforcement
    • Cutting hinges/latches is a good tactic today
    • Less “stress” on patients
    • Can be easier to facilitate than spreading apart
    • Need to get blades around device
    • Can the tool do the job?
    “ Cutting” Hinges/Latches
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • “WHY WE EXTRICATE”
      • Physical Entrapment
        • Encasement in metal
        • Pinned VS Trapped
      • Nature of Injuries and Restricted Space “Medically Entrapped”
        • Making space in order to prevent further injury by manipulating the patient during removal
  • Interior Considerations
    • Cockpit
    • Seats?
    • Seating positions
    • Vehicle concerns
    • Injury patterns /considerations
    • Packaging concerns
  • Is this enough space today? Door pop or side removal
  •  
  • Let’s summarize….
    • Safety systems are becoming more wide spread & comprehensive
    • Construction, materials & components will effect rescue efforts more & more
    • Rescue teams will need to “think & work smart”
    • More background information will be needed about vehicles & their components
    • Training issues & concerns
  • In the time we have spent together today 172 people have died in road traffic accidents worldwide
  •
