Safety and Survival Week 3:FDNY “Black Sunday” Bailout

This is our third installment of Safety and Survival Week videos. This video depicts the “Black Sunday” Bail Out were 6 FDNY members were cut off by fire, and had to jump, sadly not all of them made it. This incident lead to the FDNY spending thousands of man hours, and dollars researching and outfitting every member with self rescue devices.

In addition to watching the video the radio traffic is worth a listen as well here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXo25xL01MM&feature=related

Again the theme of this week is to listen watch and hopefully gain some insight into what you could do to prevent, or survive these situations.

What do you have to bail out with? What could have been done to prevent this MAYDAY? Was the MAYDAY clear, concise, and informative? Take some time to sit down and answer these questions either alone or with your crew. The answers you find may save your life or the life of a fellow brother fireman.

As for me I am back on shift tomorrow so I will try to get video 4 up, but if not I will do another double post on Friday. If you have any comments of feedback then please leave it in the comments section, in an email, or via twitter.

Speaking of twitter its the place to go for extra Average Jake content that may or may not get posted on the blog, but it is always something good! Follow along with my fire service journey at www.twitter.com/averagejakeff

As usual thanks for reading, spread the word, and STAY SAFE!
