Firefighter Survival

Firefighters from Kirwan Heights, Glendale, Perrysville, Dormont, Ingram and Brentwood attended a firefighter survival class. The students participated in several scenarios, including first-floor bailouts, second-floor ladder and rope bailouts, and a drop-in drill. Also, basic SCBA and search techniques were emphasised in a morning confidence maze. The class was led by Eric Wissner (PVFC, PIT Airport), with instructors from Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire, Adams Area Fire District and Ontario, Canada.
