Stuck in the snow? As featured on the Weather Network, the safest and easiest way to get your truck unstuck is by using the Ditch Hitch Vehicle Recovery System. Airing across Canada during winter snow conditions, Deb Matejicka from the Weather Network reports on the use of the Ditch Hitch for getting a truck out that has become stuck in the snow. Check out the video below.
As a member of the Petroleum Safety Association of Canada (PSAC), Ditch Hitch proudly sponsored the 2015 Annual PSAC Stars and Spurs Gala, helping to raise over 1 million dollars to support the Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society (STARS). STARS provides time, hope and life-saving transport to critically ill and injured patients in helicopters outfitted as mobile intensive care units.

The Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society (STARS) have announced another successful fundraising event. CEO Rescue in the Rockies for STARS raised a staggering $975,000 in one day. For the fourth year, STARS partnered with five prominent Calgary-based CEOs and dropped them into Kananaskis Country, near Bragg Creek via helicopter. Using only their cell phones to collect donations, the CEOs had no choice but to “dial” for their survival by remaining on the mountain until they raised a goal of $100,000 each, at which point they were “rescued” by STARS Air Ambulance.
Ditch Hitch®, the industry leader for safe vehicle recovery has confirmed two of the top ten energy companies in Canada have gone company wide with the Ditch Hitch System.
"Leaders in the energy sector are now more than ever dedicated to protecting their employees and reducing liability," stated Vern Sparkes, CEO Ditch Hitch, "we’re extremely pleased to have secured additional orders from these major players in the oil and gas sector and look forward to a continued relationship."
