Day One of the North American Vehicle Rescue Challenge from Calgary Alberta Canada, directed by professional Trainer Randy Schmitz. Witness some of the best rescue teams in the world compete at this event, including Team PXT from Puyallup, Washington, who we see in the holding area prior to the event. Chief Daryll Fleming from the Co. of Ludec governs the holding of teams before they come out and hit their pit. Next, they go to the International Judges table for evaluation. We see the team from Sechelt Fire Rescue in Canada as they march out for their first competition of the two day event. Next up is RBFRS Rescue Team from Great Britain as they converge in the pit.
Auto Extrication Competitions, or “Challenges” as they are commonly referred to, are held across the US, Canada and other parts of the globe. The purpose of these competitions is two-fold; teams are exposed to new techniques, methods and technology at these events, which improves their skills and knowledge enabling them to better serve their customers and the communities which they protect.
The Alberta Vehicle Extrication Association (AVEA) is a proud member of the World Rescue Organisation, committed to contributing to the reduction of injury and deaths of Albertans involved in transportation emergencies through education, collaboration, partnerships, learning symposiums and challenges.
