HURST TRANSFORMER SPREADER
This powerful, high-strength rescue tool affords the Kentland Fire Department the capability they need to pry, bend, and lift in any number of rescue applications, such as vehicle extrication, tractor/trailer accidents, and even large-scale transportation accidents like train crashes. Complete with three interchangeable tips made of high-strength aluminum alloy, the Hurst Transformer Spreader is ready to help the Kentland Fire Department tackle the tough, life-saving challenges that can mean the difference between life and death for those involved in the accident.
HURST X-TRACTOR S
When Kentland firefighters need a high-performance rescue tool that's capable of making the really tough cuts (into cars, trucks, and even trains), they use their Hurst X-Tractor S tool. With the cutting force of up to 94,000 lbs., the Hurst X-Tractor S provides the operation performance and cutting power needed to help make each rescue efficient and successful. The superior blade geometry assures that each 'bite' the tool makes will be a bite that counts. The Hurst X-Tractor S premium, heat-treated alloy steel components - including heat treated steel blades - make this tool an excellent choice for making clean, smooth scissor cuts into really tough surfaces.
HURST TELESCOPING RAM
When cars that are in an accident are struck from the front, or roll over during the course of the crash, occupants of the car sometimes become pinned under or around the dashboard and steering wheel. This specially-designed telescoping ram is commonly used for displacing dashboards and steering columns which entrap people who have been involved in these types of vehicle accidents. The tool's compact size, high tensile strength, and heat-treated, investment-cast steel ram feet make it an important tool for rescue applications including car accidents, structural collapse, and industrial rescue.
HURST MAVERICK CUTTER/SPREADER
With the commanding cutting force of up to 60,000 lbs., this powerful tool gives the Kentland firefighters the muscle they need to help cut their way through obstructing surfaces that interfere with accessing and freeing accident victims. In serious car accidents, occupants of the car can become pinned in a mesh of twisted metal and broken glass. With the Hurst Maverick Cutter/Spreader, firefighters can cut away parts of the car that interfere with getting to the occupants -- making it possible to get to the occupants more quickly with the medical assistance they often need. With premium quality components, including a heat treated, alloy steel piston & piston rod, machined aluminum alloy cylinder body, and heat-treated steel tips and arms, the Hurst Maverick Cutter/Spreader is a welcome sight on any serious accident scene.
PARATECH AIR LIFTING BAG KIT
When a car has been in a serious crash, it sometimes ends up in a very unstable position - such as on its roof, on its side, or even leaning against another object. With the help of the Paratech Air Lifting Bag system, Kentland firefighters have the tools they need to help stabilize any unstable situation. These aramid-reinforced, neoprene lifting bags - which can lift well over 100 tons - make it possible for the firefighters and rescue personnel to more quickly and carefully remove the car's occupants - thus getting them the medical care they need as quickly as possible.
WEHR GLAS-MASTER TOOL
This strong, versatile tool is used in emergency situations to cut glass, fiberglass, wood, plaster, and other hard materials. Because no other manual tool cuts glass in faster time, the Glas-Master cuts rescue time significantly. This is a small - but very important - tool for the Kentland Fire Department.
