"Randy, I agree with Charley; there are too many variables. Narrowing the situation will certainly play this out and 'just a search' vs a FF down search are two very different animals. And, if it's 'just a search' what is…"
"Charley, Thanks for your reply and I'm sorry for being vague. This was just a discussion that we were having. I was trying to get some other firefighters ideas on. Basically we are discussing searching a 2 story structure with one team. It…"
"Hi Randy, I think you're leaving out too much information in your " what if" scenario. First, I.C. should have an idea of where the missing FF was working.( not that that's where he would be now ) Then, how did they discover he…"
You are searching for a downed firefighter in a two story building. You enter the building and do a right handed search. When you come to the stairwell, will you proceed up the stairs or complete the floor you are on prior to moving upstairs?
Have you checked out the FE TV training? They have some good ideas for training. Would it be possible to have a rope training session. Not sure if most of the guys have rope, but Chief asked a couple of weeks ago about doing a raise/lower…"
Have you checked out the FE TV training? They have some good ideas for training. Would it be possible to have a rope training session. Not sure if most of the guys have rope, but Chief asked a couple of weeks ago about doing a raise/lower training session. I would be glad to teach if you like. Have a great day sir.
Randy, Chief Lasky asked me to contact you regarding his podcasts. Unfortunately you cannot download them in ITunes at this time (we're working on it). HOwever, you can manually download them to your computer then put them in your ITunes folder and on your IPod. Visit the page for any podcast (see the Fire Engineering homepage for links) and right-click (or control-click, if you have a Mac) on the "download" button. Go to "Save Target As" and save the file to your desktop. You can then move it into your other mp3s. Sorry for the incovenience.
