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.

compañero saludos! Bueno le cuento que en Costa Rica el cuerpo de bomberos atraviesa una situación especial, pues estamos en una etapa de autodeterminación, los bomberos nos estamos separando de nuestro gran jefe (desp te puedo contar si te interesa un poco) Adquirimos más madurez al poder tomar decisiones independientemente; se ha adquirido equipo moderno, y lo que ha sido usado en la capital se traslada al interior del país.
De incendios yo he estado escazo últimamente.
Mantengamos el contacto, un abrazo de CR

Amigo Alex, en Madrid estamos padeciendo el tema de los túneles desde que nuestro alcalde decidiese enterrar un larga carretera de la ciudad. si me envías tu dirección postal, puedo hacerte llegar un Cd de lo que tenemos aquí.

hola amigo Alex. mi nombre es Juan Carlos y soy Sargento Bombero de Madrid, en España. No sabes lo que me alegra poder contactar con un bombero de habla hispana, ya que mi ingles es un poco precario.
espero que podamos mantener el contacto.
un saludo muy fuerte desde España amigo

Thank you for the response. It is great to connect with you. I would be honored if you would consider joining our site for responders. It is easy to go there... just click on the blue box below.

Have a wonderful day and Stay Safe.

Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls. It helps the responders that do not yet have a team or would be worried that they asking for help would be seen as weakness. Please join and share it when you can. As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.
