Extrication Training Symposium

A RescueDigest Extrication Training Opportunity!

A RescueDigest affiliate, the Southeastern Extrication School is a non-profit organization comprised of six volunteers committed to furthering the response capabilities of local emergency responders to motor vehicle collisions and other types of entrapments.  Their efforts include purchasing specialty equipment not commonly available for emergency use, providing local departments and industry training, and furthering our skills and knowledge through competitions and learning symposiums.
