As the pictures and video show, Packexe SMASH and new Packexe Sharpswrap played a significant part in the event, both in the extrication challenges themselves and in live demonstrations to participants.
Andrew said: “Many of these Portuguese firefighters were seeing Packexe SMASH and Packexe Sharpswrap for the first time, and I was impressed at how quickly they saw the benefits of them and incorporated them into their rescue procedures.”
