Volunteers Begin Training on New Bail Out System
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By Ex Chief Dean W. Pappas
November 12, 2022

With the purchase of new personal bailout escape systems, thanks to a generous grant, KFD volunteers began training with the new system late last week. The personal escape system consists of a coiled rope attached to a hook, and a descender control that enables a firefighter who may be trapped on an upper floor by fire to escape via a window. The qualifying course to use this system consists of a classroom session, followed by the successful completion of nine descents from the third floor of the KFD training tower. Successful completion of the training designates the member as an interior-rated firefighter.
