Well once again I took and passed our departments Star drill (yearly agility test)
It takes me about 9 minuets and 2000 p.s.i of air from the S.C.B.A. to complete it.
I am allowed 16 minutes to do so but I would have to crawl to finish with that time
Its walk 600 ft
Climb a ladder twice
Lift 40 lbs 20 times
Strike a block 20 times with an 8 lb sledge
Carry a 40 lb hose bundle 50 ft
Drag a charged 1 ¾” hose 50 ft
Climb a ladder twice again
Walk 300ft with a canvas salvage cover (tarp)
And walk another 300 ft.
In full turnouts and air pack, and mask on, on tank air
About 85 lbs of gear….do you all know how bad I hate ladders
Anyway that’s over for a year…now lets burn a house down
