The freedom of cordless


Sidney firefighter Josh Strawser, of Greenville, uses a brand new cordless spreader to pop open a car’s hood during tool orientation at Wreckers Towing and Transport on Stolle Avenue. Older models of spreaders require thick cords that can get in the way during a rescue. Firefighters also practiced using a new ram, cutter and struts. Struts are used to secure vehicles to prevent them from moving or falling over. The ram can be used to push a dashboard up if it has been pushed down trapping someone. The cutter is like a super powered scissors that can cut through tough material. The orientation was done on Tuesday, June 8.
