Lakeside FD Recognizes Two Local Businesses

 Firefigter Todd Welch presents Vince Clark of Road One Towing with a certificate.

Road One Towing located at 45289 Olde Hwy 80 in district 26 and Eagle Auto Dismantling located in district 2 at 12650-1/2 Hwy 67 were both presented with certificates of appreciation today for their generous support with recent vehicle extrication training. The two local businesses donated several damaged vehicles each and set aside space in their yards to host Lakeside and Cal Fire engine companies who participated in these valuable training drills. Fire crews practiced the latest vehicle extrication techniques utilizing the wide variety of specialized tools carried on Rescue 3 including hydraulic cutting, spreading and lifting tools.

 Chuy Garcia accepts a certificate of appreciation from Battalion Chief Brent Larkin.

Due to the high numbers of serious vehicle accidents along the Highway 67 and Interstate 8 corridors it is imperative for emergency crews stay sharp and efficient during emergency extrication when lives are at stake. The ideal training environment supplied by these two businesses made it possible for many firefighters to experience quality hands-on training free from the added hazards of an actual emergency.
