Self Controlled Breathing Apparatus Training

On the evening of Thursday, November 12, 2015, several firefighters participated in a unique training class. SCBA dodge ball was conducted for the first time in the engine bay. Firefighters donned breathing apparatus while playing the popular schoolyard game. Along with the physical demands, the exercise tested the trainees ability to regulate their breathing and conserve the air in their Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus.
