The prop can be adjusted to 3 different pitches including a 6/12, 9/12 and 12/12 - The low height of the prop is great for training new FFs who don't yet feel comfortable or confident working on a full height roof.<br /> <br /> Just like the FF Training Wall Prop, there isn't one component in the Pitched Roof Attachment that is longer than 8 feet or wider than 4 feet - This allows the prop to be easily transported and assembled nearly anywhere. On inclement days it can even be set up right inside the apparatus bay of the fire house.<br /> <br /> The cost of the Pitched Roof Attachment shown in the video was approximately $300.00. If you're interested in the prop, send me your email address and I will forward the plans FREE of charge.<br /> <br /> Train, Be Prepared, Stay Safe, Make the Save - SURVIVE!<br /> Dale G.

This is just ONE example of the MANY types of harnesses available for rescuers to use. Some of the factors that make this harness efficient include the ability to apply it to either a Civilian or a Firefighter wearing a scba.<br /> <br /> Another advantage is the harness can be applied to the victim whether they’re lying prone on their stomach or supine on their back. This version works extremely well for vertical rescue - Such as pulling a victim out a hole or lowering them out a window or off a roof. Just like any piece of equipment or procedure, training and experience are key elements to determine what will be best for a specific situation.<br /> <br /> Train, Be Prepared, Stay Safe, Make the Save - SURVIVE!<br /> Dale G.

It's a skill used to exit a window when a ladder is not available and the trapped Firefighter is not carrying a Personal Escape or Safety System.<br /> <br /> This procedure should be considered a last resort to escape a hostile environment when all other means of egress are cut off or not existent. A key element to this tactic is getting both hands on the sill so you can position your body back upright with your feet below you. Your legs should be straight (or just slightly bent) with your knees and feet touching each other - When you impact the ground you want to immediately bend your knees and role onto your side to minimize the shock on your body. This technique is sometimes referred to as the "Parachute Landing Fall" or "Stuntman Role".<br /> <br /> The effectiveness of this procedure will rely on many factors, including: Fire conditions, your fatigue level, if your gloves are wet, the size of the window, the number of Firefighters needing to exit and the obstructions or hazards below the window and on the ground - Are just a few! Your best bet is prevention, but when all else fails carrying survival equipment such as an Escape/Safety System may mean the difference between getting out alive or not getting out at all.<br /> <br /> Train, Be Prepared, Stay Safe, Make the Save - SURVIVE!<br /> Dale G.

(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.
