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!!!!

Firefighters Critical-Tower Ladder Hits Power Lines

August 21, 2014, 05:28:43 PM CCF Administrator

Earlier today, up to four Kentucky Firefighters were injured, with one in very critical condition after their tower ladder came in contact with power lines. Initial reports are that the Campbellsville/Taylor County Fire Department (located an hour and a half south of Louisville) was on campus at Campbellsville University - doing a community related detail - when the truck came in contact with the power lines. Some reports are that they were assisting in a "cold water challenge" involving the school band.

Two Firefighters were critically injured and transported from the campus by helicopter, while the at least one other was transported by ambulance. The two most critical were flown to University of Louisville Hospital with at least one reported to be extremely critical condition. The incident knocked out the power for all of the city of Campbellsville, according to Smith, as well as the city of Greensburg.

We will keep you advised as additional information is made available. Also, below are links related to firefighter safety/survival when working near power lines. KTIYP's.
