    Default Minute to Win it Firefighter task training

    Looking to make a drill around Minute to Win it. With firefighting task, the obvious one dress in under a min, air pack and breathing in under a min. looking for any suggestions, think it could be a fun drill for all and anyone else that might like the idea.

    Good idea. I would mix in some of the silly tasks just to keep things fun. Level 1: Don your gear. Level 2: Get on Air. Level 3: Balance an egg on your mask. Level 4: Something else fire-related.

    While not fire related the silly tasks keep things light and entertaining and provide a break from the other tasks.. Especially true with group/crew drills where there is room for self-depreciation.

    Other tasks:
    Low profile (if you have the prop)
    Forced entry (again, with prop)
    Find a certain number of addresses in the map or map book
    Hit a hydrant
    Roll a certain number lengths of hose
    Get a line pulled/flaked in service.
    Kaiser Machine
    So you call this your free country

    Just a few ideas,
    Hose practice, give them targets to shoot at or buckets to fill. They have x minutes to fill the buckets or knock down all of the targets (Or knock down targets of one color without knocking over targets of another color) from X distance.

    Throw them into a room, or open space blind folded in full PPE including SCBA or in the dark. hide an object in that area. The task is to search the area, locate the object and then follow a hoseline out of the area.

    Place a number of items along the edge of the roof. Working in teams of two they must setup a ground ladder, climb it (With the second firefighter heeling it) and retrieve the first item, then bring it down, move over to the second item and do it again with thefirefighters switching places (First firghter to climb heels the second time) The team to retrieve the largest number of items in x minutes wins.
