Firefighter Survival Training at Lakeside FS2

Lakeside, CA - 

Lakeside's A-Division firefighters drilled on firefighter survival techniques at the River Park fire station training tower on March 21, 2016. This important training, developed by the California Fire Service Training and Education Program (FSTEP), focuses on techniques for escaping entrapment situations during above-ground firefighting operations. In order to ensure safety, a rope system and harness are used to provide fall protection.

The first technique is the head-first ladder bail utilizing an existing ground ladder. This evolution allows the firefighter to rapidly exit the window and immediately pivot to a feet first profile.

 The next technique is the hose slide, utilizing a hoseline to slide to the ground.
