The firefighter wearing SCBA will be expected to enter a hostile environment (smoke & heat) and systematically make their way through the structure while executing proper search procedures.

Safety and teamwork are emphasized throughout this session. A sufficient number of SCBA units and spare cylinders must be provided by the attending department.

Preferred class size is 15-20 students.

Note: Firefighters who have not been thoroughly trained in basic SCBA use and search procedures should not attempt this training. This is not an introductory session on breathing apparatus.
