Hello this is Lee Holmes with Seagram a fire rescue -- the county. We're doing various training minute videos. -- realistic training props and I would just like to bring to your attention -- these. Particular scenarios were doing our non instructional scenarios this is not for instructional purposes it's to show how you can use these various props. Is what it's all about so we try to be realistic but. We have some brand new recruits that we're using for this particular. Segment and we hasn't experienced people also and we asked an experienced officers but we don't want anyone to try to pick apart the actual. Tactics. That are used it is just to show how these props can be used in various ways of today so we just want to bring -- your -- thank you. It it's. Hello this is the thanks Steve Lee Collins would see your -- far rescue Manatee County Florida -- the emergency services -- facility. And were filming a segment -- realistic training props. The next segment that you'll see deals with confined space rescue and the use of a realistic problem. For that type -- rescue work. The particular -- that we have here is attached to the back of a structure that we call -- rescue. And we use this prop for various. Rescue simulations. Dealing with confined spaces the prop itself. Has four -- some larger than others -- missed call is nine feet. Where that would simulate a -- that would typically be suffering in in the ground. These vaults are connect it would various size pipes we have a forty foot. Pipe that is 36 inches in diameter that goes from vault want to vault to. We have a 48 inch pipe. Which is about thirty feet long that goes from -- number -- -- -- number three and then we have an eighteen inch pipe. About twenty feet long which connects -- number three with -- number four. Each of the vaults have a manhole at the top. And -- deck built so that we have a safe work platform that would simulate ground level. And there's a manhole on top of each of these balls where we can practice our various rescue techniques. Using -- pods or -- systems. You can use -- whatever the situation may be that would be best for the particular rescue at hand. We also have electrical components inside the vaults. And we have a electrical control box where lock out tag out procedures can be correctly performed. So this is about Israel's -- guess we're now having the hazards of any type a dangerous toxic gases or low oxygen varmints. -- evolution that we're going to perform. For this confined space mocked up prop. Is going to be as a simulation where you have a worker who is down inside a man hole and inside a pipe system. That worker was inside the pipe doing some work to electrical pro components within that pipe. And the attendant who was outside of the space above the manhole. Notice that his worker was not communicating with him any more so that attendant went ahead and called in rescue services. When a rescue services arrived they will evaluate the situation. Their priorities will be. First all of this going to be a rescue or recovery and second -- if -- -- president. And third what are that -- involved. You'll see the first arriving into the -- communicating with you can ask these questions and from that particular information. That it company will develop an action plan. -- an additional resources. This case will be a heavy -- Personnel. MySpace rescue work when -- Second unit arrives able. Get with the edge company officer discuss the situation. And some of the various -- SE you'll see perform will be locking up -- out to control the energy. They will access one of the man holes and drop the latter and able as soon as possible. Test the atmosphere within that space to see what those hazards may be. And we'll also set up ventilation equipment they'll send a rescuer into evaluate the situation. Communicating -- What the situation is and what needs to be done to mitigate that particular incident. From there you'll see the rescue personnel setting up a tripod. And a block and tackle system. Which will be used to extract the victim from within the confined -- through the man home. Okay yeah. This is -- Collins thanks for watching training minute videos.
