Tonight for drill, we tested the guys (new and old) on their SCBA familiarization. Knowing your packs inside and out with gloves on and NO visibility is an entirely possible scenario in the fire service. First the guys had to, with gloves and covered faces, recognize and name every part of the breathing apparatus. We then made it more interesting and did the same, but the 2nd time we pulled straps, twisted hose, buckled waist straps, unsecured bottles, etc and they had to untangle and put it on. These tasks had no time limit, because it’s all about relaxing and getting to know your tools. Great job to all the guys!!!
