Firehouse Weekly Drill No. 147 - Water Rescues

Drill #147: Water Rescues

Every fire department in the country can be confronted with a water rescue; the real question is, “Is your department prepared to handle it?”

The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area and train.

Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.

Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
