Hi, the test was made up of SCBA timed test and components, hoist the 24" ladder and climb onto the roof, send up and down the ax, two person fold of tarp and cover, hook up 1-3/4" hose and the nozzle and bring it to the second floor bedroom and differentiate the types of fire extinguishers and their use. I was so nervous though. I hate tests. I over focus. Tonight is the written.
I'll ask you. I was a USAF FF. We wore hoods. BTW this was 30 years ago. Recently I've seen 'silver' helmets in place of hoods. I assume because BA's are a bitch to wear with a hood.
There was an incident a couple of month ago at LAX where the crash guys had hoods though. Just curious.
WELCOME to FFN ! :-) Add me to your list of friends if you would like to. Have fun chat and make some friends its great !
Stay safe and God bless and keep you always .
Your Sis in the Brotherhood,
AVFD Vol. F.F.
