This firefighter entanglement training, “When Things Go Bad, Inc.” instructor, Paul Capo prepares firefighters so they are able to cut themselves out of wire entanglement to escape constriction and avoid a firefighter rapid intervention team response.
So step two, stop, back up, is one. I try to just take it off so. Alright. They can’t, we’re not gonna try it anymore.
We keep our cutters on our right side because we lay on our left. And then, we put ’em in the correct way, which is handles down and the heads up.Instructor Tip
So we keep our cutters on our right side because we lay on our left. And then, we put ’em in the correct way, which is handles down and the heads up. But boom, this comes out. You put ’em in like this, you can grab them, then have some trouble.
You see? So the working head, my glove tank can feel it and I bring it out and now I cut to make it tight. Does that make sense?
Anytime you get anxious on your head on here, anytime you skip to this fourth one. And it’s low profile. So can you take this off? Try to take it off. As if you’re gonna put it back on again because you are.
Right hand, it has to go out first, which is real convenient on your left side. Can’t take the left off or you’re gonna be choked out by your low pressures.
Now you are not entangled. There’s a sense of anxiety relief immediately because I am not entangled anymore. My pack is, and I’m not in a great way, but do you understand that like my constriction is no more?
This is on my face. You go left side first.
Okay? I spin around and I keep my butt up. Boom. Lift up.
