Attached is another great video from Dale Pekel, it demonstrates some drills you can use in your station simulating removing down firefighters from basement windows. I know the guys at my old shift just built a bailout simulator, and the prop in this video is the same with just a few add ons (the smaller window insert).
This just shows how much ingenuity, and creativeness are critical factors in firefighter training. Thanks to Dale Pekel for putting this stuff out there for people to learn.
The prop itself is not very expensive especially if all your shift members chip in, and does not take a carpentry expert, to complete it.
Please share any training tips, and drill you’re doing at your station. If you send some pictures along, I will feature them on the website. Do not forget to follow us on twitter at www.twitter.com/averagejakeff
As usual thanks for reading, spread the word, and STAY SAFE!
