Training and Drills:
Automobile fires present unique hazards. Flammable liquids and metals, toxic smoke and exploding parts necessitate regular training.
All new Firefighters are trained to use many rescue tools. Here, a Captain explains the proper techniques when using the "jaws of life".
In a burning structure, sometimes the only path to safety goes through a window. Harris Hill Firefighters carry a special harness and rope that allows them to escape through a window on an upper floor. This dangerous, but lifesaving technique requires periodic proficiency testing.
