Where firefighters come to talk training

CONTINUED EFFORT (Quick Drills, In-depth Lessons)

In the fire service there are a number of companies and individual firefighters/officers that are always "going for the gold", trying to find better ways to accomplish our job and strive to assure the "basics" are always fresh in the minds of others.

This certainly plays true for Captain Daniel Troxell of TroxFire Training Solutions, LLC and Traditions Training, LLC. In his career, spanning nearly four decades, he continuously strives to teach the firefighters that work with him or take a class from him how to be the best.

Today, he brought his homemade (and soon to be commercially produced) reduced profile, wall simulator into work. Each member practiced calling a MAYDAY to include LUNAR information, breaching a wall, cutting trough wiring/entanglements and attempting several techniques for passage through a residential wall. All of this was done while breathing SCBA air with a blacked out face piece

Simple drills like these continue to make us all better. It could be a simple 30 minute drill like this that saves your life.
