TRAINING GUIDES

PPE: Survival on the Fireground

Today’s structural firefighting gear offers unparalleled thermal protection and safety. Although it is the finest quality given today’s technology, it is not impervious to failure under catastrophic conditions. In this guide, Karen Owens gives a detailed step-by-step process for removing compromised gear and assessing and treating firefighters with burn injuries. Firefighters often underestimate respiratory injuries that can occur during overhaul. Jeffrey Herbert provides life-saving information regarding serious respiratory hazards that exist during overhaul. Eric Schmidt offers a realistic view of donning gear in context and provides an excellent four-stage training process. This Training Guide is sponsored by FireDex.
