Inside Disaster City, TexasOctober 3, 2013 5:48 pm
More than 85,000 rescue workers from all over the world come to Disaster City every year to be trained for natural and man-made disasters. This 52-acre site in Texas simulates real conditions for numerous disaster scenarios like collapsed structures, train wrecks, earthquakes, tsunamis, oil fires and hazardous material spills.
Check out this great BBC video about Disaster City and notice that at roughly the 1:20 mark (and again at the 3:18 mark) trainers are using a Skedco rescue stretcher system for confined space rescue.
Disaster City is the world’s most comprehensive emergency response training facility and Skedco is proud to be an integral part of it.
