Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

A simply, quick drill to teach members how to stretch that second line up a well h***, all you need is two utility ropes, tie one at the top of the stairs and let it hang, then have a member start at the base of the stairs with the other rope working there way up and practicing switching hands so the lines don't become wrapped around each other, works well and does tie up any hose, so if you catch run their will be little delay, it can be done in any bldg. with well h***, must give credit to DUKE in E42 for the idea.
