Event Chairman Randy Schmitz explains that the challenge of producing this event as part of TERK Canada, and talks about the 27 teams from around the world that are competing. In the Sequester tent, PXT from Puyallup Washingtion prepares for their second challange, and they are out the gate and stright to the pit. Next up, the local favorites from Calgary Fire check out the tools in the tent as they go at it. They hit their Pit and find that a huge beam has been placed on the damaged vehicle with the trapped patient. How long will it take these young rookies and will they get there patient out in time?
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.
