  • Snare pole

    How many dept's have snare poles on any on their rigs? I saw one on another dept's engine and thought that it was a good idea. We had a dryer fire a few weeks ago and the home filled with smoke, then we had to find the family's cat and I wish I would have had that pole that day. We found the cat, then chased it into a bed room with little smoke in it and opened the window.

    We dont use a snare pole. Basically we have never saw a use for one however I have been proven wrong before

      Years ago my father was a reserve police officer. He rushed home one afternoon to construct a snare pole with which to control a dog belonging to a couple involved in an auto accident. The dog wouldn't let rescuers access the patients.

      I can't say that there have been any instances I can remember when we've needed one, but I also know we should never say never.

      And animal control is never available when you need them.
      Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

        We have one on all our first out trucks (3 engines) and I think one or two of our second out trucks.
