The CTIF Commission for "Extrication and New Technology" is trying to encourage and promote the cooperation between fire services and other emergency services around the world, representing 36 different countries via CTIF.
In the next few years, the commission wants to focus primarily on the development and exchange of “best practices” regarding extrication techniques for vehicles on alternative energy (Hydrogen, Electric, CNG, LNG, Li ION batteries, Super Capacitors etc)..
Besides exchanging experience, the commission also wants to draw up standard operational procedures regarding extrication of busses, trains and airplanes.
The commission will work within the ‘ISO’ (International Organization for Standardization) to be able to internationally harmonize information and training for the rescue services in the field.
If we can share our experiences on the international level, this will help us all one step further to guarantee the security of our citizens and emergency workers. The more we can learn from each other, the better.
