implement the skills and techniques and to demonstrate a forcible exit from an entrapment. This course utilizes L.ET.S. Fire Fighter Entrapment Simulator which includes a demanding maze, entanglement area, collapse zone, window bale out/bale up area, forcible exit area and exit practices from lightweight building construction buildings.

OBJECTIVES

1.  Associating the amount of air in a bottle to the approximate time left in the bottle

2.  Explain the procedure for skip breathing

3.  Exercise the Mayday Drill

4.  Understand the operation of PASS devices, integrated and nonintegrated

5.  Develop skills to remove wire or other materials which entangle fire fighters

6.  Perform tank shift and tank dump maneuvers, while in a confined space

7.  Perform self-exit from a simulated collapse encasement

8.  Perform self-rescue from a simulated window using ball up/out techniques
