AMBULANCE EQUIPMENT



SUGGESTED EXTRICATION EQUIPMENT *

In many instances, ambulance services are involved in the extrication
of trapped emergency victims because a rescue unit or wrecker is not
immediately available. The following list consists of light rescue equip-
ment which can be stored in most ambulances. Ambulance attendants should
be adequately trained in light rescue procedures. The list provides for
lifting, prying, battering, and cutting tools.

1. Jacks (preferably a porta-jack and hydraulic jack);

2o Crowbars, 51" pinch point, and wrecking bar 2^";

3" Cutting Tools (wire cutters, tin snips, hacksaw);

k. Rope (50' by 7/8", 50' by 1/2");

5. Protective Gear (gloves, eye glasses).

Whenever possible, extrication equipment should be stored outside of the
patient compartment

RESUSCITATION EQUIPMENT

Artificial ventilation devices should be hand operated, portable
and independent of a supply of oxygen. The recommended self-refilling
bag-valve-mask unit permits proper timing of long inflations and asses-
ment and correction of ventilation volumes, airway obstruction, mask
