Basement Rescue Video

Here is a great video of some basement removal techniques.   This is another video from Dale Pekel, who looks like he may have gotten a promotion? Dale?  Anyway, these props are able to be used for multiple drills and Dale is very generous with how to build them.

These two techniques are great and you can see that one must be comfortable and well trained in the use of the SCBA. Confidence comes from continued use and training.  You must master the basics and know your tools like the back of your hand.  This allows you to perform the more advanced tasks without worrying about the simple things because they become second nature.

Train hard and stay safe. Thanks Dale for another great video.

    Thanks brother – No promotion though. The white lid is just what they issue Instructors at the college.  I'll be on the line until retirement (God willing).
    Excellent article on the Colerain-Township LODD - You definitely hit the nail on the head! Situational awareness and prevention are key to avoiding emergencies that require us to deploy FF Survival and RIT procedures. It's post like this (and many others on your site) that make it clear why you teach at the FDIC.

    Thanks for the kind words, I really appreciate it.  Your videos are great and as long as you make them, they will always find their way here.  Stay safe and if you ever need anything don't hesitate to let me know.

    Keep making a difference,

    Great vid!
    My only minor comment would be that for the second scenario the entry team could probably make a faster exit if the first member stood on his partner's leg/knee rather then wait for the outdoor man to lower the prussik.  Only talking a few seconds but..
    Great to see the drill!
