I read one on FE site (I think that is where we got it) called the 500 lbs drill. Give a firefighter a bottle with 500 lbs of air and make him work (simulating self extrication from a building under mayday situation) while timing duration of remaining air (all the way to mask sucked to face).
Then give him a second 500 lb bottle and allow him to await rescue with a timer encouraging all of the air conservation measures (simulating RIT accessing and freeing firefighter in mayday distress).
This is a good way to teach guys why we top our bottles off to 4500 instead of accepting 4000 as "enough" at the start of the shift.
