On January 28th 2016 Flagtown Fire joined forces with !mpact Training to complete our annual SCBA Confidence and air management drill. Members participated in a 12 station 60 second circuit while in complete turn out gear and on air. Members were instructed to record their time when their vib alert went off so they may guage their air consumption based on their work pace. These stations simulated lifting, pulling, dragging and core excersises that firefighters use on every call.
After the hard work was done, members participated in a few friendly games of dodgeball on air and again recorded their times under a different type of stress. We would like to thank Hillarie and Michael Scannelli of !mpact Training for setting up the course, monitoring members for proper actions and the use of their facility!!! A special shout out to Chief Murphy and Lieutenant Johnson from 38 Fire for assisting us with filling the numerous SCBA bottles members went through.
