It may be possible to relocate street furniture or objects away from the immediate scene of operations without affecting the stability of the vehicles involved. This should be undertaken if possible, to provide greater opportunities of access/egress for emergency responders. If objects are relocated, they should be carefully positioned so they do not compromise future extrication processes.
Where a vehicle has come in to contact with street lighting, agencies such as electricity providers may need to be contacted to isolate the power. Similarly, a tree resting on a vehicle may need specialist resources to be contacted to aid with the extrication, especially if there is an entrapment.
