BFD Traininig 9/10/12

On Monday, September 10, Belton firefighters met for regular bi-monthly training.  The subject for the drill night was based on rope rescue operations.  Firefighters practiced building anchor systems such as using pickets and large vehicles.  A ladder gin was constructed to give rescue personnel a high directional when transitioning over edges.  Finally, our members practiced building and operating a lowering system using a bar rack and converting that to a haul system by way of the 3:1 Z-rig.  We knocked a little rust off but all in all the guys did a fine job.
1:1 Picket System for guy lines
