Firefighter Training Prop: Modular SCBA Maze

By Todd “Walt” Walton

Above you will find a presentation that was created to describe the Modular SCBA Maze that the Kearney (NE) Volunteer Fire Department constructed.

The maze is modular in design, which means that the modules (obstacles) can be relocated in the maze to discourage firefighters from attempting to memorize the maze layout. Many of the modules are also adjustable to accommodate firefighters of various sizes and abilities. The response our department has received on this maze is positive and everyone states they have never seen anything like this before.
