Where firefighters come to talk training

Firefighter Ladder Bail - Instructional Video

This is a comprehensive video on the Firefighter Ladder Bail Emergency Egress Technique. The 3 most commonly taught methods will be discussed and demonstrated in detail - Including the “Hook 2 - Go 4”, “Butterfly/Extended Reach” and the “Toe Hook”. Also included will be a review of the “Ladder Slide”.

For the Ladder Bail and Slide to be effective, firefighters need to proactively place ground ladders as early as possible to the windows/floors that members are and will be operating on. Beyond proper placement, firefighters need to safely train on this procedure long before it would ever have to be implemented in the field - Determine and become proficient on the technique YOU like best before it's necessary to use it in an emergency!

Train, Be Prepared, Stay Safe, Make the Save - SURVIVE!
