BFD Training-10/24/11

On Monday, Oct. 24th, Belton firefighters met for regular bi-monthly training.  Firefighters practiced rapid intervention and self-survival techniques.  Calling a mayday was performed before members practiced exiting through a stud wall and through a reduced profile obstacle.  They were then directed to find a hoseline and coupling and determine which way was out of the "structure"(smooth, bump, bump to the pump).  Another skill station had firefighters practicing mitigating low air emergencies by performing regulator and facepiece changes.  This challenge was made tougher with full PPE and a zero visibility environment.  Great night of training for our members.
