Today we are hosting Task Force 1’s Machinery Entrapments course. There are firefighters from Springdale, Fayetteville, and Bentonville in the class. The students started in the classroom and have progressed to drills simulating machinery entrapments and entaglements. This is just one of the many disciplines that we train for. The fire department answers calls for fires, medical emergencies, vehicle entrapments, machinery entrapments, rope rescue, confined space rescue, structural collapse rescue, trench rescue, and hazardous materials incidents to name a few. We often are called to assist other agencies due to our specialized equipment and training.
