Low Profile Prop
Forcible Entry Prop
Flat Roof Prop
Thanks a lot Gary, those will definitely help build one for my crew.
Here are a bunch of pictures of my Wire Entanglement MAYDAY prop. This prop is designed to get firefighters stuck in an entanglement situation. The idea of the drill is to get completely into the prop and call a mayday, utilizing the LUNAR acronym (Location, Unit, Name, Assignment, and Resources needed). It was built with 2x4's, carriage bolts, chicken wire, and internet wires. The beginning of the drill is on the open side. The firefighter enters the prop, becomes entangled and calls a MAYDAY. The firefighter is then to get their SCBA to their side, and use the swim technique to become detangled. The firefighter will come to some obstacles. There are 2 - 2x4 braces inside the structure which are able to be modified, so the firefighter doesnt become oriented to the training prop. The firefighter then gets out of the wire, but is in an open space that they are able to don their SCBA cylinder so they can get skinny and go through a low clearance h***. There were 3 different shapes. The best for the prop is a triangle. We also built a square, and a rectangle that is 16" on center. These holes can also be rotated 360 degrees so they can be on the top, bottom, left or right. Once the firefighter gets out of the training prop, they redon their cylinder and come up to a wall, which simulates a wall breach. A halligan is put at this wall and is used to break out the drywall. Drywall is able to be slid into position after each evolution. Once through the wall breach the evolution is finished. This is getting alot of attention, and is becoming a great asset to our department. If anyone has any questions, dont hesitate to ask.
