ASU's Disaster Preparedness Program

"This type of equipment is much different than the normal vehicles that we do so what we're doing is teaching them to go out and teach the other responders of how to handle these emergencies how to take it apart how to get people out of this equipment," said Brent Cox, Assistant Professor at ASU
