MISSISSAUGA FIRE DEPARTMENT AUTO EXTRICATION DEMONSTRATION –and THE REAL THING 24 HOURS LATER (Dedicated to Missy Finestkind Garry W. Morden)
May 29th, 2009
Hey Missy Dudes and Dudettes,
Today’s Blog, all images and video is dedicated to our finestkind Mississauga Fire Chief Garry W. Morden because this is the Team he built.
It was quite the weekend. Saturday was the City of Mississauga’s 8th annual Family Fun Day Event —the wind-up celebration to the 2009 National Public Works Week.
Like last year, the highlight for many who attended was watching the Mississauga Fire Department’s Auto Extrication team do its Best in the World thing. (And yes, this really is a Mississauga Best in the World.)
But here’s the weird part.
The very next day, yesterday, I was driving west on Dundas and I saw an orgy of flashing lights at the Dixie Road intersection. As I pulled closer I saw our Missy Firefighters begin to extricate someone from an automobile —by which I mean they were really doing a number on the car door.
Today, I worked up a video showing both the Mississauga Fire Department’s Auto Extrication team demonstrate their skills at the Civic Centre and their real life rescue yesterday. Our finestkind Missy Fire Chief Morden would be so proud.
So. Here are pics from Saturday’s Auto Extrication team demo.
And here they are doing the real thing yesterday at the intersection of Dundas and Dixe Road.
