Training programsIn addition to the Crash Recovery System information, Moditech Rescue Solutions BV offers a number of training courses on
emergency response to incidents involving modern vehicle technology and alternative propulsion systems. The set of training
courses cover everything that rescue workers need to be prepared for. The courses covers information on vehicle safety and
body construction, restraint systems and alternative propulsion systems as well as general guidelines for emergency operati-
ons. Participants will also learn how to use the Crash Recovery System with maximum impact.
emergency response to incidents involving neW vehicLe technology
In this course participants will get to know the latest in vehicle technology in regards to vehicle rescue and extrication. Follo-
wing an interactive classroom session, covering aspects like body construction, restraint systems and alternative propulsion,
participants will directly apply their gained knowledge in both, virtual reality as well as hands-on extrication scenarios. Cut-
ting and spreading techniques to cope with modern technology challenges are also part of the program along with informa-
tion on setting up scenarios for practical training.
emergency response to incidents involving vehicLes With aLternative propuLsion
In this course participants will get an in-depth view on all important alternative vehicle propulsion systems, their built-in
safety features and the limitation thereof. Students will learn to adequately assess emergency situations, such as car acci-
dents, fires or submersions and to take the necessary action focused on maximum efficiency and safety. Emergency response
will be trained using virtual reality scenarios. Vehicles with alternative propulsion will be on display for a hands-on
certified instructor program
The Moditech Certified Instructor Program (MCIP) has been developed specifically to provide rescue instructors with the
latest knowledge in vehicle technology and how to implement that in their own courses. Members attend training courses at
Moditech Rescue Solutions B.V. where they are trained to deal with all vehicles equipped with new vehicle technology and/or
alternative propulsion. They learn how to use the information provided in the Crash
Recovery System efficiently and with maximum impact. This knowledge will enable
them to incorporate CRS in the emergency response process and during emergency
services training.Once certified, Instructors become members of the Moditech Cer-
tified Instructor Community (MCIC). Members of our Certified Instructor Community
will frequently receive updates on new vehicle technology, training materials and
virtual reality scenarios helping them to maintain their expertise and build profes-
sional and up-to date training programs. Refresher courses are also offered on a

Extricate occupants quickly and safely using a digital mobile information system

CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR PROGRAM
The conflict between safety and accessibility In the automotive industry new developments and technologies are evolving quickly. The use of high-strength steel, additional
reinforcements and numerous safety restraint systems in modern vehicles provide excellent protection of the occupants during a
crash. Due to all these built-in safety systems the occupant survival rates during traffic accidents has increased significantly. Also,
vehicles are more and more equipped with alternative propulsion systems, making them environmental friendly due to their low
After the crash however, all these new technologies present new safety hazards and challenges to the emergency services when
responding to the incident and extricate occupants trapped in the vehicle. Not only the safety restraint systems like airbags
and seatbelt pretensioner, but also the environmental friendly propulsion systems present
new safety risks. What does a first responder need to know when such a vehicle
is involved in an accident? What exactly are the challenges and hazards
that such vehicles present? What do rescue workers need to now
to respond safely and efficiently, but most important, what
knowledge is irrelevant and overkill? It is the mission
of Moditech Rescue Solutions B.V. to provide
the relevant tools and knowledge required
to effectively respond to todays traffic
accidents around the world.
Extricate occupants safely from crashed vehicles!
Editions and optionsThe Crash Recovery System software is available in 5 editions: the Lite edition, the Standard Basic edition,
the Standard Full edition, the RDW edition and the VIN edition. All editions feature manual selection of the vehicle
through make, model, type and year of the vehicle and have their data stored locally on the device.
The solution: Know whats inside!Moditech Rescue Solutions B.V. has recognized the need of an effective and practical solution for these challenges at a very early
stage. More than 10 years ago, this awareness led to the development and introduction of the Crash Recovery System: a mobile
vehicle safety information database available for virtually every laptop or tabletPC and in 18 languages. Using this information
system at the scene of the accident, emergency services can easily access all rescue relevant information about the vehicle. Today,
Moditech Rescue Solutions B.V. offers emergency services the missing link in emergency response: digital vehicle information
available on all mobile computer platforms like Windows, iOS and Android.
The selection of the correct vehicle model is automated by entering the license plate or VIN number (RDW Edition / VIN Edition).
Using any mobile (3G) internet connection, the correct vehicle model is then selected within seconds. As a backup method in case
the mobile network is unavailable, manual selection of the vehicle model is always possible as all vehicle data is stored on the
local hard drive.
Immediately after completing the selection, an interactive and model-specific top- and side view graphic is displayed on the
screen. The Crash Recovery System enables emergency responders to access a comprehensive database including all airbag
equipped passenger cars, buses and trucks (EU only). All the latest technology is included (hybrid, electric and fuel cell vehicles,
new airbag technologies and advanced steel reinforcements). The Crash Recovery System contains databases for Australasia,
Europe and North America. Depending on the country, right hand drive or left hand drive vehicles are available in the database.
The interactive top- and side view of the vehicle displays all restraint system components as well as other relevant items such as
the battery, reinforcements, the fuel tank, etc. in a single window. In case of a vehicle with alternative propulsion, a notification
screen is automatically displayed. In addition, all required disabling procedures
for a quick and safely deactivation of the vehicle are shown.
In the graphic display, component information and deactivation instructions for
hybrid vehicles are easily accessible by clicking on the component of choice in the
diagram. With this unique functionality, the Crash Recovery System ensures an
effective and safe extrication process and supports first responders in choosing
the best and safest methods.
