I completely understand the cost factor Alex - Most FFs in the US haven't purchased their own for the same reason. If you wanted something extremely simple and inexpensive you could use webbing to tie a seat harness, a length of rope and 2 carabiners. Do you have an email address?

Hola Alex!

If your question is about a Personal Escape System you have many choices - The cost of a complete system ranges from $200 - $700 US dollars.

Here is what you would need:

An Escape Belt or Harness
Rope or Webbing - The length is personal preference
A Decent Control Device (DCD)
1-2 Carabiners - 1 for attaching the system to your belt/harness and 1 for alternate deployment options
An anchoring device or hook
A storage bag is an option and not a requirement if you have pockets in your gear

Hola Alex

Tu mensaje me hace muy feliz. Yo también mi sueño es tener amigos en todos los bomberos de todo el mundo. Internet y el software de traducción nos ayuda mucho en esta dirección. He creado un blog en el bombero francés en interent, pero con una herramienta de traducción que nadie puede visitar ettraduire lo que quiere. Los invito a hacer. También se reanuda mi servicio en el cuartel de mañana.
