Cutting torch systems are hydraulic tools that can facilitate building entry and victim extrication. Responders use these systems during urban search and rescue operations, for forcible entry during tactical operations, and for underwater rescue operations.
The Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Technology Guide on Cutting Torch Systems are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
