Tour bus vs. about eight cars. Three trapped, two in an upsidedown Dodge utility, and a third in an Explorer. There was also a motorcycle under the bus...but it was being towed by the Dodge. Two fatalities...

i really cant say much about them as ive only used them once or twice but from what i see, they rock man, nothing worse than having a flipped car snap in half or fall on your crew.

My dept has Nightmare Rescue Struts. We've used them in training and they worked well. As with any strut, you've got to use a chain or ratchet strap or something to tie down the bottom so it doesn't kick out. I attempted to use them once on a real crash but we didn't have enough room to deploy them.

They are made by a guy local to me, but I have no connections with him.

yeah thats the only thing that sucks is that you have to have room to use them. the Nightmare Rescue Struts are almost the same as the res q jak ones. what kind of hydraulic tools does you dept use?

Yes they both lived, this call was back in October. I been in Fire/EMS for 11 years and this was probably the most challenging call I have ever done. I have seen and done some pretty crazy things and this call is probably tops. A book can be written about this call.

Jon: what did you have to do regarding airway management? Any further info is appreciated (non-HIPAA, of course); it would be good to learn from this one.
