Thanks Limestone Fire Protection District!

KACC Fire-Rescue-EMS students were once again welcomed by Limestone Fire Protection District for an incredible opportunity to put their self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) training to the test.

On a field trip to Limestone's fire department, students navigated their way under, over, around and through numerous obstacles in the MABAS 7 smoke trailer.  They did this all while wearing and breathing from the air tanks on their backs.  Students entered the modified semi-trailer in simulated smoke-filled conditions, very similar to what they will experience when they fulfill their goal of becoming a firefighter.

This real-world experience was demanding, with students crawling on their knees, up and down three levels of small openings, rafters, narrow passages and other challenging barriers designed to entrap ore limit their movement along the way. 

When finished, the students seemed to have a renewed confidence in their ability to use their SCBA.
