A Fire Ops 101 participant prepares to enter a smoking building during the search and rescue scenario.
Boots, pants, jacket, oxygen tank pack, hood, breathing mask, helmet and gloves; all zipped, clicked and secured with Velcro within 60 seconds.
The 12 participants at the first-ever Fire Ops 101 on Saturday, May 16, were averaging closer to 5 minutes to perform this fundamental task - even with help from several firefighters.
