It is NOT intended for Firefighters who practice coming off the rig already masked up or who only have to connect their regulator to “Go on Air”.<br /> <br /> Coming off the rig with your facepiece on or breathing air can have both advantages and disadvantages. When you still have to don your Mask, Hood, Helmet and Gloves - The techniques in this video (if you choose to follow them) will guarantee you faster times.<br /> <br /> Ideally the majority of steps for donning your S.C.B.A. should be completed enroute - The less moves that still need to be accomplished and the faster and more efficiently they can be done, the quicker a Firefighter can make entry and the more LIVES and property that can be saved.<br /> <br /> The bottom line is that every Firefighter should be an expert when it comes to their equipment and donning their S.C.B.A. - When lives hang in the balance, every second can count!<br /> <br /> Train, Be Prepared, Stay Safe, Make the Save - SURVIVE!<br /> Dale G.

It’s important to mention that when forcing entry we should start our approach from the lock side FIRST. Attacking the hinges should be a LAST resort due additional obstacles and security measures that can be hidden from view on the inside of the door - Including padlocks, slide bolts, security hinges and door closers - All of which can be located on the hinge side of the door.<br /> <br /> Beyond this, FFs should also consider bringing both a set of Irons as well as a circular saw (with steel cutting blade) up to the scene. Having both available will increase your tactical options and allow an efficient transition from Plan A to Plan B, etc.<br /> <br /> This video is NOT a recommendation for attacking hinges - It was produced to simply give the viewer a perspective of the time and effort needed to accomplish this task. The best advice I can give is to become proficient in the use of the Irons - When properly implemented by knowledgeable and experienced operators they will be effective in defeating many if not most of the doors you will encounter.<br /> <br /> The SAW is a viable option &amp; should be a piece of equipment in your F/E arsenal, but remember these points:<br /> 1. The Irons are easier to carry - When split up, 2 FFs can have them in their possession at all times.<br /> 2. A set of Irons should be on every rig where saws may not.<br /> 3. The Irons will always start, will not run out of gas, or get flooded, or not operate in smoke - Saws can &amp; do malfunction versus the effectiveness of the Irons is based more on the user than the tools themselves.<br /> <br /> Train, Be Prepared, Stay Safe, Make the Save - SURVIVE!<br /> Dale G.

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.
