WESTPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — Westport First Responders completed a training drill for handling rollover accidents on Thursday.
Members of the Westport Fire Department recently conducted a series of rollover crash training drills at Sherwood Island State Park over the span of several days.
During the exercises, vehicles were simulated into positions that resembled real rollover accidents, with crash test dummies inside.
Firefighters then went through the proper methods for safely removing an injured passenger or driver from the vehicle.
The department says, they see accidents like this everyday, often on I-95 and the Merritt Parkway. These simulated crash drills help the emergency crews better prepare for extremely complex rescues on the road.
The Westport Fire Department wants to remind all drivers to be safe on the roadways this holiday season.
