The Injured Firefighter and Gear-Removal Practices

Location: Exhibit Hall

There are complexities associated when dealing with an injured firefighter when they are wearing all their personal protective equipment (PPE). The class will review best practices and techniques for PPE removal from an injured firefighter and transitioning the situation from firefighter removal to EMS care. 

This hands-on training will provide an opportunity for the participants to apply the gear removal techniques discussed in the classroom learning environment. Join us at the 2017 FRI HIT: Gear Removal Program and participate in a best practice of how to take care of our own!

Each participant will:

  • Gain hands-on experience of cutting and removal of actual firefighter PPE
  • Acquire the knowledge, understanding and skill of the gear removal best practice technique
  • Ability to transfer this training knowledge and technique to their department
  • Receive a CD copy of the presentation

An Exclusively Unique Opportunity

FRI is not a firefighter training conference - it is an exclusively unique opportunity for company officers and chief officers (and those that aspire to be). You will not learn how to stretch a line or vent a roof at FRI - but what you WILL learn in various diverse dimensions, is how to successfully LEAD and COMMAND those who do.
