Training Impact - Liberty Skid Steer Rescue

How did the Penn State ag rescue training help you manage this incident more effectively?

"Because of our ag rescue classes, we were able to better consider our needs (resources) and requested a farm machinery technician to be dispatched to the scene. We constantly monitored the patient to make sure we were not making the situation worse. We used air bags, cribbing, saw-saws, hand tools, and were re-evaluating often to make sure we were progressing appropriately because it was a slow process."
