Old Firefighting Training Video - Probationary Firefighter Training

August 22, 2014, 09:26:40 PM CCF Administrator

A great old-timey training video from the East Coast, official location unknown but 'Hartford' can be clearly seen on the side of the responding rig. Much of the video's narration still applies to firefighting today... except the end part about applying the nozzle stream into the window. But it's ok, they did it because it was pre-SCBA, not post-UL studies.

Radio Etiquette on 8 Box

August 22, 2014, 07:03:32 PM Copperhead

Sounds like some one needs to review proper radio etiquette!!!  I realize it's the Grunge, I mean, Grange, Fair, but jeez.  Just another reason fire police should not be allowed to have radios.  Perpetuate the stereotype!!!!
