. Check out these straps. They are fast and easy to use to save a fellow firefighter. Does your department use them? We have been training several departments in our area on their many uses, and some want to have them issued to each member. They are $10.00 dollars a piece, which pretty much covers the labor and material. The stitching has been tested,and it's breaking point was 2800 lbs. Great tool for the tool box. Be safe all and tell me what you think. Any questions contact me @firstname.lastname@example.org.
