Putting SCBA on in less than a minute?
Is this really possible, I am told to pass Allegheny County Fire exam in conjunction with other requirements I must be able to put on a SCBA on, hook it up and be breathing air And put my fire gloves on in 60 seconds. Ive tried this and my best time so far in 90 seconds. Though I am really really new and haven't practiced at great length this part of the exam scares me simply cause it is pass or fail if I go over 60 seconds.
Is it really possible, any tricks out there other than to practice practice practice to get this all on, hooked up and be breathing in 60 seconds?
Practice, practice, practice!
Just keep on practicing. It can be done. When I was a Vol, I had to do it for the two dept's that I worked for, and when I was hired full-time I had to do it again for my dept. Most dept's that I know of require this skill to be passed.
