    Default Training Props

    Hello everyone.

    Today at my local fire academy, I took a firefighter survival course. One of the evolutions was to take out a window, which was a training window. This is the approximately 10 piece system that allows you to break a window without actually breaking a window. It's made of plexiglass or the like. I'm looking to find out if anyone has info on this piece of equipment. My FD has a training house and would like to look into getting this.

    Default Any one have training prop ideas?

    I took some really great prop ideas from www.rapidintervention.com . I'm looking for any idea's you have! On April 1st we are doing an SCBA confidence course. On May the 13th the Pittsburgh Drill. If you make training fun it isn't training anymore. We all know hands on beats sitting on your @ss.
    We're not spliting rocket hairs here people!

    Training is like building a pyramid, if you want it to last, you don't built it pointy side down!

    Default training props

    We are building a Low Profile, Reduce Profile, entanglement,etc prop. Is there any standard height or width these need to be for a member to go through.

    14.5 inches is the space between studs set 16 inches on center. This is the most common stud spacing for walls. I have built many props and found if you measure the width of the fire helmut that this would make the smallest opening you would want. Look around your area to see what size opening a firefighter might find. Like attic or crawl space openings 1 1/2 ft by 2 ft. Let your imagination go.
