First responders from West Plains, Mo., who learned the latest techniques in emergency vehicle extrication as part of the NABC F.R.E.E. program.

When drivers in West Plains and the surrounding areas have an accident, they rely on the community’s first
responders to be there to help them to safety. And when they’re driving late-model vehicles with numerous airbags, advanced technology or electric/hybrid engines, the rescue can be more challenging.

The NABC F.R.E.E. program helps first responders stay abreast of the rapid changes in vehicle design, including high-strength steel, airbags, advanced restraint systems and onboard technology. Alternative fuel systems found in electric and hybrid vehicles also present new challenges for first responders on the accident scene.
