Firefighter Training Prop - The Pitched Roof Attachment

This is a new prop that I designed and constructed to be used in conjunction with the FF Training Wall Prop that I first built quite a few years ago - It's called the Pitched Roof Attachment.

A variety of skills can be practiced on this prop which will help prepare FFs to operate more efficiently and safely from pitched roofs. 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.

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.

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.
