Removing the vehicle is one of the many tasks our brave firefighters are capable of. We have seen too many accidents in our lives to know that removing a vehicle is an inevitable possibility whenever there is an accident or wreckage.
To be equipped in this type of situation, firefighters must practice. And Dearborn’s fire department may have the most expensive training machine for its car-pull training, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 in 2020.
Posted on the fire department’s Facebook page this week, firefighters cut a Rapid Red Shelby GT500 during training. It’s just a test mule, so the six-figure price for a fully charged Mustang Shelby GT500 doesn’t really apply here. But of course, we can’t help but notice that this one is even equipped with a Carbon Fiber Track Pack – a $ 18,500 option for those you can buy from the showroom.
The post on the social network came with an inscription that reads:
Your dear firefighters train daily. This week we trained to take out vehicles. It almost broke our hearts to reduce this test vehicle Ford Shelby Cobra GT 500 in 2020. Thanks to Dennis Lark and FoMoCo for the opportunity. Other training included special operations and familiarization with the equipment.
Removing the vehicle involves cutting off the vehicle from a stranded passenger to avoid injury during a rescue operation. The process is not as easy as it seems, and having a real vehicle during the training would help firefighters learn the ropes of the difficult task.
It is noteworthy that Ford Motor Company donated the test mule to be used for this specific purpose. These pre-production vehicles do not reach legally, so they often meet non-ceremonial purposes. For this Shelby GT500, this is a very useful cause.
