Deary Fire Department and Ambulance participated in a program through Cornell University's Farmedic training. The program has been offered by Cornell for over 20 years and due to the high numbers of agricultural and logging equipment in our area, we thought it a very valuable and informative. Thanks to our instructor, Brad Carico, who came up from Caldwell, Idaho to teach the program. Many thanks to Murray Stanton who allowed us to come to his farm and see his equipment in operation.

Practice, practice, practice! Ambulance medics and firefighters work to extricate a "victim" in an overturned tractor. Firefighters practiced stabilization, air bag lifting and cribbing operations as well as incident command. EMS personnel worked to evaluate and stabilize their patient among all the firefighter's activites.
