Life-Saver Recognition Award


Junkyard Dog Industries has created a new program to recognize lifesaving efforts performed by our customers while utilizing Junkyard Dog Struts and Sidewinders during an extrication. This recognition program will be called the “Life-Saver” and will be awarded to the crew or team in actual contact with the equipment at the rescue scene.

Criteria for the award consideration will be the following:

  • Use of the JYD Strut and/or Sidewinder devices in an actual emergency event where the use was a factor in extrication or retrieving the casualty
  • The use of the JYD Strut and/or Sidewinder in an unusual circumstance or emergency event that made the outcome positive

A department is requested to submit to Junkyard Dog Industries a detailed incident report explaining how the equipment was utilized and listing the personnel involved to consider if the incident worthy of recognition. Additionally, any photographs of the incident would be helpful.

When selected the individual personnel will receive a certificate of recognition and a lable pin indicating the Life-Saver achievement. Additionally, a Life-Saver decal will be sent to place on the apparatus that carries the JYD equipment acknowledging the lifesaving effort.

Awardees and a description of the event will be featured on the JYD website, as well.

To submit a request for recognition, send to:
