Trencher Entrapment

On Sunday September 28, 2008 Western Taney County Fire District E73 (Rescue/Engine) and Engine 102 along with Automatic Aid Truck from Branson Fire Department to a reported trencher roll over with the operator trapped underneath it.

We used high pressure air bags to lift and Rescue 42 struts with some cribbing to stabilize. It all worked great and it could be done safely and quickly thanks to Rescue 42 struts.
