Packexe SMASH Glass Management for Vehicle Extrication

Staying with the theme of my previous post – Laminated Glass Poses Significant Danger – I wanted to write about the use of a product to manage the glass during an extrication. Or “Time Critical Glass Management for vehicle extrication” as the Packexe puts it. The product is called the Packexe SMASH. The adhesive used on the Packexe SMASH was specifically formulated for holding glass which protects the patients and rescue team from glass fragments and dust. I have yet to use the Packexe SMASH system but would like to! However, based on the video below the application of the product looks straight forward. Please check out the Packexe website and Fire & Rescue for more information. Fill free to post any comments or experiences with the Packexe SMASH

Packexe SMASH used on a side window. Also take note of the N95 style mask that the rescuer is wearing.
