  • Donning SCBA time and techn.

    When i took my FF1 clas the y set the time limit to 1 minute, you have to do it within that time limit, one of my instructors can put it on in 27 sec. mask, hood activate man down alarm activated. It all depends on the type of SCBA, man down alarm. My personal best is 38 secs. I use the "over the head tech" wich i find easier.

    Quick times for donning PPE and SCBA are not as important as getting it all on correctly and completely. Rookies must be watched when on scene. Coats hung up in SCBA frames, forgotten hoods and gloves, throat and ear flaps not fastened properly...all these can lead to a very bad day at worst, lost time at best. Leave all the speed-demon stuff at the academy. Take your time and make sure you have it right when you're out there for real.
