Firefighters Train on Extrication with Powerful Technology

Firefighters Train on Extrication with Powerful Technology

Recently, firefighters from both Gordon County Fire/Rescue and Calhoun Fire Department had the opportunity to practice their extrication techniques with some new technology. Despite the extreme August heat, firefighters gathered in the holding yard of Parrish Wrecker Service and were introduced to the Hurst Jaws of Life®; however, this wasn’t the first time some of our firefighters have seen or used the Hurst brand of extrication tools. “Some of the veteran firefighters have seen and used the Hurst tools before, but those tools were hydraulic, meaning those tools required a motor driven pump and hydraulic hoses connecting it to the tools,” said Deputy Chief Byron Sutton. Nathan Saylors, Division Chief of Training for Gordon County Fire/Rescue, coordinated with Mr. Jarrett Jenkins of Municipal Emergency Services to bring demo tools to Gordon County for evaluation by our firefighters. Firefighters from both the county and city fire departments tested the tools performance in the real environment of strategically taking the metals and plastics of today’s automobiles from around trapped occupants. “In the fire service, firefighters define this task as vehicle extrication,” said Chief Saylors. Chief Sutton said, “Today, the guys got their hands on the latest technology; battery powered rescue tools. I had the opportunity to drop by for a few minutes and watch the guys in action with the tools. I must say I was impressed by the speed and the power of the tools. I have seen battery powered extrication tools in the past, but they didn’t impress me very much. They just didn’t seem to have the power and the speed of our hydraulic tools, but we all know technology changes every day, and these tools seemed to be just as fast, if not faster than the hydraulic tools we currently carry on our rigs. It’s not clear yet if either Calhoun or Gordon County’s fire department will invest in the tools. “There are other brands of extrication tools out there, we normally evaluate multiple brands of most everything we use in the fire service, especially when it is a significant purchase,” Chief Sutton said. “We want to make sure the equipment satisfies the needs of our departments, and that we are spending our citizen’s tax dollars as wisely as we can. It’s not about pretty; it’s about performance and dependability.” “Exactly!” said Chief Saylors “we (county fire) recently ordered new fire engines with the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) funds allocated to us. We have to outfit those apparatus with tools, thus the reason we are evaluating this new technology here this week.” “On behalf of both Chief Cox [training chief for Calhoun Fire] and myself, I’d like to thank Jarrett (MES) for hanging with us for three days and giving our guys the opportunity to give the Hurst tools a workout. I think most all of us were very impressed with their performance. We would also like to thank Parrish Wrecker Service for donating 13 automobiles and to P&R Auto Sales of Calhoun for donating 5 automobiles, towed by Parrish Wrecker, for our use during this...

Administrator’s Report for August 2, 2016

Financial Update Sales Tax Revenue:  Gordon County received $468,438.38 in Local Option Sales Tax (LOST) revenue and $671,612.95 in Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) revenue during July 2016. These values reflect a $22,464.45 (4.58%) decrease in LOST and a $32,263.00 (4.56%) decrease in SPLOST funds compared to July 2015. Major Projects Building Renovation:  A progress review meeting was held on Tuesday, August 2, 2016 to assess the status of the renovation. The building access ramp concrete has been poured and hand rails are pending installation. Interior framing is underway and underground sewer lines are being replaced. Momon Construction is reviewing changes received from the Pieper O’Brian to adjust the Voter Registration & Elections office space to avoid support beams identified by the contractors. A separate restroom was eliminated to avoid the additional cost of replacing underground sewer lines damaged due to their age. Fire Trucks:  An agreement to purchase three new Fire Trucks with 2012 voter approved SPLOST revenue is presented to the Board of Commissioners for approval. Upon receipt of this agreement, the vendor will assemble and deliver the equipment within 12 months. Greenbelt and Blue-ways Trail System:  The Parks & Recreation Department is working with the Purchasing Department and Appalachian Regional Commission to finalize a plan for contractor selection. This effort will be funded primarily through ARC funds to acquire a master plan for a county wide trail system linking community facilities and resources through a series of walking trails, biking trails, and waterways. E911 System Upgrades:  The new phone system is now in place at e911. Several problems were identified regarding the accuracy of the caller ID function and call playback functions, which have since been fully resolved. The county continues to work with AT&T to make final adjustments to voice quality and volume on the center’s administrative and trunk lines. Coordination with Spillman to replace the existing e911 Computer-Aided Dispatch system is pending a start of work meeting with the contractor. Ranger Fire Station:  Initial design documents for the renovation of the Ranger Fire Station are being coordinated between the Fire Department and the Building Inspector. Four firefighter candidates have been tentatively selected pending initial employee...
