(Firefighter Extraction Pulley System). We placed the first version of this piece of equipment into service back in 1994 to supplement our RIT operations. Through the years I refined the system to what you will see in the video.<br /> <br /> The F.E.P.S. is intended as a backup (or option) to a traditional ladder rescue or “Denver Drill” – It’s simply a 2-1 mechanical advantage haul system on a change of direction pulley. The system is designed to lighten the load and stress on rescuers without compromising the safety or speed of this type of operation.<br /> <br /> Cost of the F.E.P.S. shown in the video = $398.00<br /> <br /> Components include:<br /> • 150 feet of ½” static kernmantle rescue rope = $175.00<br /> • 2 – X/L Omega screw lock carabiners = $30.00 each<br /> • 2 – 2” CMC pulleys (NFPA “General Use”) = $50.00 each<br /> • 1 – Large Black Diamond screw lock carabiner (with “key style” gate) = $10.00<br /> • 1 – 9 foot webbing loop (made from a 20 foot length of 1” tubular webbing) = $6.00<br /> • 1 – 16 inch webbing loop (made from a 54 inch length of 1” tubular webbing) = $2.00<br /> • 1 storage bag = $45.00<br /> <br /> Train, Be Prepared, Stay Safe, Make the Save – SURVIVE!<br /> Dale G.
