I'm John -- I'm back with fire engineering for novice trading minutes. We're gonna look today at. Razor wire which is found -- areas that really want high security. And some ways that you can get through it and some hazards involved with that. And then we're also gonna look at what -- and fences. And a a method that you can deal with people that may have it entailed by those security devices. And out here a little sample typical raise. The wire. The problem with this stuff it's a generally constructed -- -- they are still it's pretty strongly though it's small diameter. So I have the pliers that I would normally are in my pocket and when I go to cut it. There really it it doesn't even -- It makes. No no impact whatsoever -- if you come on -- -- communicated -- it's -- gonna hold the piece I'm gonna try to attack it with this small ball Carter and it almost does the job. But not quite. -- lot of guys started bigger ball Carter the -- it's too much of the spacing between you're not gonna get through so another alternative with this type of stuff we can use. A -- map and occidental watch or in this case we had to -- -- and oxygen. Set up the good flame. And cut through that razor -- now it's it's a nice evolution because it. It -- no movement into that -- so you have a victim. Could be an intruder who got caught up in the security. And now has to be rescued could -- a firefighter. I myself years ago had -- an occasion where I was on a roof -- a major fire. There was a good likeness on the roof of Fella called me over it hardly take -- -- make an inspection hole as I went over to him. He told me well stop what are you doing there was a little depression it turned out that the snow had filled up. The a shaft that had been -- with this reason why it. To prevent entry down below the places electronics store so if it wasn't for him telling me to stop I might have four million -- been trapped in there. You could have a child or somebody get caught up I don't try to get a ball you know that went up on a -- for -- like that. And you -- to be prepared to know how to deal with this type of emergency we're gonna come over now gonna do the evolution and just walk you through it. -- can't set up my torch. I have a decent plain. Looking at the -- quarter -- steps to -- coming. Pre -- that. -- for a little bit. And then when you think it's ready it's not the -- you're gonna -- to Wear glasses so you don't get your eyes -- And it just cuts it back quick -- -- -- No problem with that putting any -- into that it's not gonna further damage that victim does come -- stabilize and get them set up. To watch out come a little bit away from them so that that he doesn't treatment than this and -- slices -- let audit that reviews of the specialty school. We're gonna look briefly at and an evolution that's been done numerous times. We've had people that jumped -- -- we had people that we're trying to -- around kids young adults and they slipped and they got entailed on these. Wrought iron fences. I believe it's called now in your city at least that you can't have them -- let's at least sixty -- but there's plenty of old installations still around. And people can and its stock. When that happens the first move is -- the column in Europe the stabilize that victim. Try and secure them from movement at that weight off of off of defense. We've -- six -- books. Our guys -- dismayed -- it carries and so forth with their wrongs. Stabilize that person and then what we're gonna do is we're gonna take. -- if you would. Some type of fabric. And we're gonna place that fabric between the victim we're gonna say that the victim is over here they've been -- Jimmy's gonna put that fabric there in this case it's an old moments good. Who's gonna take a two and a gallon can and he's gonna -- that and I'm gonna come in and caught it and that -- -- create a person. That we can then transport them secure them with a ball dressing and get them to the hospital. I -- treating it now. Once you see that metal start the bubble. You know that -- start to introduce the -- And it. -- -- And I. -- guys get into trouble with this it does take time. Did the field who just bought the fuel in the accident properly you wanna hill like a jet motor going wanna -- -- quarter -- blue tips. Get that close to -- objective -- it -- -- if it's if it's there you can go out boarded angle with the tip and then don't -- -- too much of a rush to the cut proof vest. And that's -- remains -- ought to burn through that inflated sense that this gets fixed slowly go to the stock or cut through it. And then at that point. We had to -- pouring water and protecting the victim from the heat we have another member monitoring with -- handed control of the victim is not the hot from the conduction. We got people stabilizing and we can bring them walk to the hospital. So watching that and other training and I hope -- --
