The Whitehall fire department has upgraded to a new version of the 'jaws of life.'
They've had the new equipment for a little more than a month.
The fire department bought the new hydraulic rescue tool while they were in the process of preparing to buy a new fire truck. Whitehall firefighters said they decided to upgrade some new equipment as well.
The new jaws of life are battery-operated and will save minutes.
Whitehall firefighters said it took more time to get the old equipment up because it wasn't battery powered.
