TheBattalion.tv's blog | TheBattalion.tv Firefighter Series - Fire, EMS, Rescue, Training
We are back in Colorado with the Cortez Fire Protection District to see how a small town department gears up and trains for a possible Hazmat Incident, a demonstration of a new portable pump using a pool for drafting and several EMS calls.
Dear Battalion Viewers,
Just a note: I am not sure if you know this, but only Battalion Members can stream our videos in High Definition. Non-Members must watch it in Standard Definition.
As you know, we are not about the fires or victims, but about the job, and your safety on the job. Our new show is with the California State Firefighters Association and the free training they offered their members in Chowchilla California.
This department continues to train with the latest tools, tech and gear, today is no different than any other day; training in the afternoon,
A few years back Prince Georges County Fire/EMS tested Key Fire Hose Combat Ready Line that is up to FDNY specifications, it's now being deployed across the County, today they are using the Yellow Line, it comes in assorted colors so you can designate it as a cross-lay, bumper line, anything you want to know what line comes from where.
On the last 24, we were riding with Saftey Office Jiron. A call came in late in the afternoon, we responded for nearly an hour to nearly the county line, down a dirt road, to a home that was fully envolved. In this part of the county their are very few hydrants and the Prince Georges County Fire/EMS Tankers were called in. This wss very eye opening for use to film. In the beginning, you could see very little pressure and at times, no water at all coming out of the nozzles; this show will be coming
We are in full production and have been filming for the last 7 days, and we have 7 more here in Maryland. We have been filming with several Safety Officers. On this call, we were riding with Captain Hurt, a Safety Officer. You may have seen this department testing Key Fire Hose Combat Ready hose line, now they are taking it department wide.
Today, we spend the afternoon with Mark Brady, the PIO for P.G, Co, and on Wednesday, it's going to be some SuberVac Fan testing either at the Training Center or here at Station 816.
More to come.
6:20AM Riding with Battalion Chief Donny Fletcher on structure fire call, we arrive on-scene to a single family dwelling, the flames have just been put out and they had brought our a male victum, watch the video here on our slider to see them working the female victum and saving a life, you may have seen this on your local news.
More to come.
