In support of local Fire, Rescue and Emergency Medical Services crews, Gershow Recycling hosted members of the Medford Fire Department for an extrication exercise the firefighters performed at Gershow’s facility in Medford on June 18.

During the exercise, firefighters extricated a "victim” from a car involved in a "crash” using the "Jaws of Life.” They performed two scenarios, one with a vehicle on its side and another involved in a fire. The Medford Fire Department thanked Gershow for their generous support.
