I look forward to assisting this group in the future.

Here are some ideas for making MAYDAY training props. We took an 8 foot 4x4 cut it in half, drilled multiple holes and ran rope through it to simulate an entanglement. The other prop we made uses 3/4" plywood and 4x4's as well. We took a full sheet of 3/4" plywood and cut it in half and attached it to two 4' 4x4's. This can be used as a ceiling collapse. We use them a lot and is a very inexpensive way to train your members on the most important word they will learn during their careers.

Great day today, spent the day teaching live fire/flashover survival to High School fire class, 40 students have now joined the next generation. It is a great feeling to give something back.
