Firefighter Self Rescue Training

Each year as part of our required annual training one of the key modules we focus on is instilling the ability for our members to evacuate or self-rescue in the event that they became trapped and needed to escape.

During the training class, our veteran members demonstrate to the instructors their abilities and work through a series of scenarios which mimic potential real world situations. Our new members are given the chance to work one on one with an instructor to learn the basics of self-rescue. At the end of the day, if they choose they are then given a chance to execute what they have learned for the first time under an instructor’s guidance.
