Air Consumption Drill

training scenario created by BFD-Line

Training Hours: 4.0

Description

Participants will perform a modified version of the Counties Air consumption test. Firefighters will be monitored for air consumption after completing each station. The participant will be done when they either complete the course or exhaust their air supply.

Each firefighter will have a scribe following to ensure they are completing the task and to record air consumption. 

The goal of this exercise is to familiarize firefighters with the SCBA and the amount of work they can realisticly perform while on air.
