Firefighters Practice the Pittsburgh Drill
Earlier this year our station constructed three training props that would allow us to execute the Pittsburgh Drill. The Pittsburgh Drill is a physically demanding drill in which a team of firefighters must follow a hoseline to a downed firefighter (in our case Rescue Randy stood in). The crew must then rescue that firefighter by getting him back to the starting location. There are three obstacles along the course, the first is a diminished clearance, followed by a pyramid, and finally a tube which the firelighters must crawl through. Once the firefighters reached Randy they then had to devise a plan to bring him back through the obstacles. Some photos are below.
