The instruction was part of the curricula at the Rescue Squad College Saturday and Sunday at Obion County Fairgrounds. The training, attended by about 40 rescue personnel from throughout the state, was provided by the Tennessee Rescue Squad Association in cooperation with the Obion County Rescue Squad. An overturned truck and the car underneath were part of the training scenario. Trucks and other training aids were furnished by Buddy’s Wrecker Service and Younger & Sons Salvage. Steve Sedberry brought his entire crew and heavy-duty wreckers to the scene to demonstrate how overturned big rigs are retrieved.
