Training Minutes: Extending Your Air

In this Training Minutes video, Ric Jorge and company demonstrate a technique to increase a firefighter’s chance of surviving a low-air situation during a Mayday. Jorge discusses how firefighters can manipulate their air bottle so that, in conjunction with the previously discussed breathing techniques, a down member can dramatically stretch out their supply of viable air. He also discusses ways your department can evaluate this technique and train on it under managed stressful scenarios.
