New Basic Bailouts Training Program

The Basic Bailouts  program explains and demonstrates the couple most common techniques that a fire fighter will employ when having to bail out of a building.  The video program consists of a short 16-minute video presentation, using the ultra-realistic Guardian Safety and Survival Training Simulator®.  The presenter is Michael Wood, an Acting Lieutenant on one of the busiest companies in one of the nation’s busiest departments.

Bail outs covered include the head-first ladder bail-out, basic hang technique, and basic drop technique.  Each of these bail-outs are critical to know, employed often, and have several fine points that can make the difference between a successful bail-out and one that results in serious injury to the fire fighter.
