I was told this was an open house demo - possibly during fire prevention week? There was an Emcee on the audio who was describing the evolution to the public. I was told the entry people seen in turnout gear were non-certified firefighters who were walked through what they were supposed to see and do. The walk through SIMULATED the evolution without the use of any fire.

It is obvious that they must be untrained, nobody would crawl into that intense fire, even firefighter #3 doesn't recognize the first two are in big trouble...

No fault to the injured, they were UNTRAINED and clearly didn't understand the limitations of our PPE. Ultimately the fault should be placed on the department's leadership and supervision.
