Cedar Grove Fire Department Conducted Mask Confidence Training Sept.8th 2013

Posted on September 9, 2013

Members of the Cedar Grove Fire Dept. had to negotiate this borrowed North Caldwell Fire Dept. Mask Confidence Training Prop.  The members had their mask lens blocked completely, and then they went through a series of obstacles and entrapments.  Firefighters had to remove or rearrange their air pack to bypass the obstructions. The drill was meant to build the firefighter confidence with his/her air pack. In the event of a true emergency during a fire they would be able to free themselves.  Other drill stations were May Day, Following the hose line out, Low profile and Reduced profile S.C.B.A. drilling. A special thanks to N.C.F.D. for the prop loan.
