Fire class breathes easy with SCBA
The introduction to SCBA’s was taught by Chief Oliver Dufrene and Joe Deist of Paradis Volunteer Fire Department.
The students were able to put on the SCBA’s over their school uniforms in preparation for their smoke house class.
Members from Paradis, Des Allemands, Norco, Luling, and Hahnville VFDs and representatives of IMTT and Dow headed by Chief Reggie Gaubert of HVFD were on hand to help with the smoke house training.
The house across Tiger Drive from Shoney’s was used for this training. The house was filled with a non-toxic smoke from smoke machines that the local fire departments use to simulate an actual fire setting.
Local VFD members were stationed inside while the students went in wearing their full bunker gear and SCBA to get the experience of being in a smoke filled environment. The students also used the SCBA’s for their Search and Rescue.
Again, the house was filled with smoke and local VFD members were on hand to help with the training. A child manikin was put in the house for the students to find simulating a rescue of a victim.
Students crawled into the house in teams of two along the right wall or along the left wall to search for the victim. This gave the students experience in team work along with search and rescue techniques.
After all of the students had an opportunity to perform the search and rescue techniques, the Thermal Imaging Camera was demonstrated to the students showing them how to find someone in a dark smoke filled room.
Thanks to all of the local VFD members that assisted the students with this training.
