We tryed a drill that was posted here at FFN. We'ed done very similar drills, but this was a new feel for the guys, with lot's of low profile areas, as well as stairs and ladders. Just take your crew to your local school play ground, and feed a rescue rope all through it, and to throw in a twist, cross the rope to see if they'll follow the right one. You can throw in some objects for them to identify with they're gloves on just for practice. Anything from tools, to house hold items. Keeps them thinking, and helps them stay sharp. Give it a shot. Make sure they're masks are covered, natrually, and try not to let them see what they'll be doing. We had them mask up in the back of the rescue, and led them to the play ground behind the school building. The results were, they want to do it alot more! Have fun, be safe brothers, and sisters!

We drill every Tuesday night, and we do run out of ideas at times. We do alot of speed drills. We do everything from cummunication drills, to smoke machine drills. We did a fun high angle rescue drill, where we had an injured contractor on the roof of our firehall, that touched a power line while repairing the roof. This required EMS, and fire to go to the roof. We packaged the patient on the roof, and lowered via two laddered firefighters, and back ups, and a stokes basket. The nice part of this drill was, we covered everything from ropes, and ladders, to patient care. Quite successful! Oh yea, we didn't even drop the patient!

i took a class in s.c.b.a confidence and our instuctor took our packs and twisted them all up opened our bypass valves and tied our starps and stuff in knots and we had to go in pitch black and also turn our nomex around and have our fire gloves on and put it back together...the training for that is to know you s.c.b.a it was a good class
