On Monday nights our members spend time training to be better at the different aspects of firefighting. On this particular Monday night our members trained on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA).
This training involves putting on the gear the firefighters wear and making sure it is correct to prevent burns. Firefighters also use the SCBA to make sure they are not breathing in the smoke and hazards involved with firefighting. This training is critical when fighting fire. Fireman need to make sure they can put the gear on properly and have all the PPE needed including a radio to communicate if the need arises.
