    Default new technique,denver.

    a new technique could help to save more firefighters' lives:

    http://cbs4denver.com/local/firefigh....2.667402.html

    what do you think of it?
    "sauver ou périr"

    "courage et dévouement"

    2 french mottoes in french fire service.

    As with any technique, it has its time and place. It is one more trick to add to the tool box. Good job to the firefighters that came up with it and shared it for others to try.
    A couple restrtictions that come to mind after watching the video are.
    How well can you recover after slipping or falling while latched to the victim?
    I am not a tall person, how will this work for stairs?

    I plan on testing these at my next class or training drill.

    This technique is not new. It has been taught for a number of years and depts. that wear harnesses w/large hooks/carabiners (such as FDNY) have been teaching to use the hook as well. I have practiced & taught this procedure and it works well, but use caution when & how you use it. Attaching yourself to the down ff can potentially lead to a problem. Good luck & stay safe!

    Hey guys
    I'm glad to see you saw our story on the new technique we are practicing for basement rescues. I realize that it is not a new technique; how do you think we learned it. Anyhow we have taken this technique and tested it quite a bit and found alot of benefits from it. If any of you out there are interested in any additional information feel free to write back. We would be more than willing to email our powerpoint to you or share any information you would like over the phone as well. Thanks for your interest and I hope it will be helpful to you guys. Be safe out there.... Bill C.

    Could I also view your Powerpoint that you have handy. I'm teaching a class on RIT on the 5th of August and trying to get different ideas. Thanks again and stay safe out there.

    Hey Bill,

    Hoping to check out the PPT too. msebas@mail2web.com

    Thanks for sharing the knowledge!
    The good thing about this job is that we have done so much, with so little, for so long that we can do everything with nothing...... which is what is wrong with this job.

    My department's finally gotten into the RIT frenzy. I'm sure my training officer would love to have a copy of that Power Point. Could you please send a copy to pa69b@aol.com.
