After an extensive theory and question and answer session in the classrooom, the Emergency Response team members conducted the ‘hands on’ practice using a variety of functions with several jaws of life and spreaders. The crew performed several scenarios of extracting from smashed vehicles and all scenarios were carried out competently along with the correct use of the Robinson tool – known as the Hooligan tool and Glass Cutter for cutting windscreens.
The Emergency Response Team members and Track Safety personnel conducted several fire simulations using state of the art training equipment, with several types of vehicle fire scenarios.
Perth Motorplex would like to thank all our attendees, Trainers and Team members for giving up their time with their dedication to safety. Special thank you to Lawrence Junior for researching and conducting the training exercises.
All members performed competently and efficiently as they continue to lift the bar in Safety for the 2020-2021 Perth Motorplex season.
