Firefighter Survival Training

Firefighters place themselves in hazardous environments everyday while responding to emergencies. While inside of a burning building it is a sobering reality that firefighters could experience equipment malfunctions or become injured, lost, or trapped. In anticipation of these incident hazards, recruits of KCFD Academy 22-4 are receiving a full week of self-survival training. This training covers “MAYDAY” communications, disentanglement procedures, “Bail Out” techniques, and Rapid Intervention Crew operations among other disciplines.


Media is encouraged to visit and observe this training in action. Tuesday, January 24, between 2-4 pm.
