11, 2009 PPE and SCBA Training
Tuesday, members instructed new recruits on proper procedures for
donning and doffing PPE and SCBA. The recruits were given tips for
their upcoming Firefighter I class starting in the fall. Some tips
covered were proper donning of PPE, making sure all zippers and
velcro closures were closed so as not to leave any skin exposed.
Proper donning of SCBA,checking for proper face seal and making
sure the nomex hood is placed over the face-piece not leaving any
skin around the face exposed. Other recruits were instructed on
vehicle stabilization and patient packaging. Recruits were shown
proper cribbing placement so as not to obstruct patient removal.
Recruits were also instructed on utilizing different size cribbing
boxes, step chocks and high lift jacks in order to stabilize vehicles
on uneven surfaces.
