The guys at Rescue Methods are putting together an awesome training video library. Here is the link to the youtube channel. Click HERE and be sure to check out the webiste, HERE. They have been playing with 2Tinga boat in swift water applications. Below is a video promo. What kinds of boats do you use for swift water / open water?
We had a chance to play with a new product on the market called the Firefighter Battle Axe from Lansky Sharpeners. There are some definite pros and cons to the tool. None of us thought that we would drop the irons for the battle axe when coming off the rig.
We did leave the folks behind the design with a suggestion to market this tool towards the C.E.R.T’s. It would be a very useable piece of equipment in that application. If you are involved with your local C.E.R.T., pass along the link below to them.
