Japan - Tokyo 2013
Rescue Experience Tokyo, Japan
From 18-20 February 2013 Holmatro trained all 150 rescue team leaders of the Tokyo Fire Deparment. With great support from our local dealer Akao and guided by our Rescue Consultant Ian Dunbar we demonstrated the finer details of road traffic accident rescue techniques.
The program on Dream Island in the Tokyo bay included the introduction of innovations like the Greenline battery pump SPU 16 BC and the V-Strut. The benefits of rams were also demonstrated during the training. The participants were clearly impressed by the Greenline pump as well as the ease with which our NCT cutter CU 4050 C cut through the B-posts.
Dream Island – built on the old city waste dump! – did not really live up to its name in rain (day 1), snow (day 2) and cautious sunshine (day 3). However, that did not stop the Rescue Experience from being a success: the Tokyo Fire Department was very impressed with the extensive training.
