The Packexe SMASH team sponsored the South Wales Regional Challenge that took place on the 8th May 2010. The rain managed to hold off and an enjoyable day was had by all. There was lots of interest in Packexe SMASH and the Hampshire and London teams used the product in the challenge pits as it was ideal for their particular scenarios.

The teams did very well and Bridgend won the South Wales Challenge, successfully getting the casualty out of a very difficult scenario within the 20 minutes challenge time, so well done Bridgend. Hampshire, won the guest team section, they put Packexe to good use after receiving a tricky scenario with a window filled Ford Galaxy.

Packexe SMASH is a time critical glass management product used within the fire & rescue industry for extrication at road traffic collisions. It supports the quick and easy rescue of the passengers as the film reduces the risk of the glass breaking, also allowing fire fighters to remove the glass quickly and in one piece.

Packexe SMASH is going from strength to strength and the most recent show, Interschutz 2010 turned out to be an extremely successful exhibition for them. The fire and rescue exhibition takes place every five years in Germany and this year it had 1350 exhibitors from 46 countries. The show experienced a heat wave with temperatures in Leipzig reaching 34°C in the shade! However, visitors still ventured to the stands and visitor statistics were predicted to total a dramatic 125,000.

Packexe SMASH kick started the show with daily live demonstrations in the outside showground. Fire Fighters from Leipzig used Packexe SMASH during a full extrication exercise, showing Packexe SMASH's performance under several different scenarios including wet conditions.
