Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Here are a couple pictures of what I am talking about. Top picture is the "Oyster Cracker" and below is the "Florida Floor Jack". They may sound "corny", but to have a common name for a technique is important so that we all know what a certain technique is. Join in and share the wealth of knowledge you possess.
