Drill of the Week: Knots

The purpose of this drill is to improve the skills necessary to tie various fire service knots and to identify the use of each knot. Ropes and knots have applications in many fireground operations, including hoisting tools, hoselines and equipment; search operations and personal safety. Firefighters must have a thorough knowledge of each knot and should be able to tie the knot in a variety of conditions including poor visibility situations.
