Another confirmed usage of the TL-9 by the members of the Cheshire CT Volunteer Fire Department.
This is special as Cheshire was one of our first customers and a department we train with often.
"At approximately 1708 the Cheshire Fire Department was dispatched to Tucker rd. near Mixville rd. for a motor vehicle accident with a victim pinned under a car. Crews arrived to find a victim pinned under a motor vehicle with bystanders attempting to lift the vehicle with a floor jack. Based on the position of the victim, the grade and the floor jack, our 40” spreader and TL9 were placed under the A post of the vehicle. The vehicle was lifted using the TL9 and spreader, the progress captured and the victim was removed. From time of arrival of the rescue to time of the ambulance in route to a trauma center was less than 6 minutes. The TL9 provided the quickest and safest solution for this incident. Other lifting methods would have turned this into a prolonged event. The initial training with you and continued training with Connecticut Custom Fire Training played a big part in the success of this operation".
