Steve Hinch from the Emergency on Call Center (our next door neighbor) reached out to Comer Construction about assisting in a trench rescue training on Wednesday February 16, 2022. Steve is a Training and Exercise Planner for the Special Operations Team, HazMat and a Technical Rescue Technician. The focus of the training was for the Shock Trauma “ Go Team” to understand the dangers of a trench rescue and the importance of cave-in protection.
Comer Construction provided an excavator and operator to create a 6’ deep trench that was 5’ wide and 12’ long. The training was conducted by Steve Hinch and Daniel Lemmon (TRT Crew Chief) from the Harford County Special Operations Team. The list of attendees varied from various Harford County EMT’s to special operations teams from Baltimore City, Baltimore County & Harford County as well as the Shock Trauma “Go Team.”
