Raising the standards for rescue training
Canadian Valley Technology Center
El Reno, Oklahoma             March 12-13, 2010


The Big Rig Rescue Class will be separate this year.

Due to the great demand for this class, we are being forced to present it multiple times per year. Thus making it a school of its own.  

With the class already scheduled for March in El Reno, Ok. we can not logistically present it during ExtricationFest! this year.

Don’t miss this limited opportunity to attend the best training available for working with some of the area’s foremost towing and recovery professionals and their massive equipment.  You’ll learn the safest and most efficient techniques for heavy lifting and stabilization of big rigs involved in collisions with smaller vehicles.  Travel if you dare, Hell’s Highway and practice The 5 Step Discipline for Overturns and Underrides.  The featured presenter will be Billy Leach, Jr.  Billy is recognized as the Developer and Sr. Presenter of BIG RIG RESCUE, and has presented at the FDIC, Firehouse Magazine’s Expo, FDNY’s Technical Rescue School, and many other venues.


This program will feature both classroom and HANDS-ON learning.  Attendance is based upon first-come, first served and is very limited to ensure MAXIMUM HANDS-ON.  Attendance during all scheduled training is required to receive a Certificate of Attendance.  An extensive handout is provided for reference by attendees.

Timber Cribbing/Strut Support Operations

The 5 Step Discipline for Overturns/Underrides

Winching/Rigging Gear

Winching Fundamentals for Rescuers


As you travel Hell’s Highway you can anticipate encountering very challenging yet realistic scenarios such as, tanker overturn onto an auto, van trailer underride, concrete mixer overturn onto a smaller vehicle, van trailer overturn onto an auto, and MUCH MORE!  Come, learn, and test your new knowledge and skills!  You WILL NOT be disappointed!


NO walk-in registrations!  Attendees are expected to furnish the following (without exception):


Helmet to meet NFPA Standard

Full length fire retardant clothing
