One of the GREAT things about having a well trained Fire and EMS is that they know things like this!!!!

Had no idea. The three black lines on school buses serve a purpose. The bottom line is the floor of the bus. The middle line is the seat line. The top black line is the top of the seats. These lines of the bus are reinforced, but they also let firefighters know where to cut in case of an accident. I love knowing stuff like this. Old dog, new tricks.

Train Your Probie

Just one of the many ways of removing a patient from a roof or elevated plane using a stokes basket, a ground ladder, and rope. This scenario may apply due to the building construction, unavailability of an aerial, or the inability to set up the aerial. In this evolution we secured the patient in the stokes basket then using locking carabiners, locked it into the tip of the ladder. Two firefighters were on the ground to assist with guiding the ladder while the roof team lowers the basket with rope. Shout out to Magic City Truck Academy, LLC for the idea and Tour 4 PFD E2/E3/L2.

Folks, this is occurring at almost every volunteer fire department. If you don’t have volunteers, then who comes when called? Fire departments are having to create ways to keep everyone safe.

Millcreek Township officials said critical staffing issues and an 80-year-old volunteer fire department model they say is vastly outdated need to be.

Measuring the irritants and cancer-causing contaminates present in structure fires proves SCBA should be used even when carbon monoxide levels are deemed acceptable.

A priority for the fire departments is getting new self-containing breathing apparatuses that provide fire crews with fresh air while firefighting.

Items to think about....

PPE manufacturers say structural PPE can provide a false sense of security during water rescues and flooding because it's designed to provide thermal protection.
