Trics of the Trade
« on: March 05, 2007, 07:04:33 PM »
Tony Tricarico, the Captain of Squad 252 has an awesome training program on called trics of the trade. Every month he makes a new training slide show. So far he has done window bars and their removal, downed firefighter removal with tubular webbing, downed firefighter removal with a hoseline and others. it can be accessed by going to and typing "trics of the trade" into the search bar at the top of the page. I suggest it for every firefighter everywhere; when I showed it to my brothers they loved it and we use it as the subject of drills often.

Here is one simple trick.  When adding a length of hose onto the noz. place a hose strap on the shutoff holding it in the open postion. 

Doesn't seem like much, but does help prevent the shut off from getting knocked closed.
