I've done BA training on playground equipment. I highly recommend it. Two of us just followed the Lt up, over, through, around the play equipment, I went through most of my air from laughing so hard! We even climbed right up over the monkey bars - made me appreciate what you actually are capable of in full gear, and also the limitations of the set and thinking about twisting to get it through a tight squeeze and under a platform. Fantastic training. Not moving fast by any stretch of the imagination but using every muscle. Boy was I sore the next day! :-D

Whatever you would normally do, but do it in BA.
Monthly meeting is much more fun done in BA.
Any of those team-building activities in the cadets manual.
Fireman's Football.   Oh, sorry, that's now called Fire-fighter's Football.
Rattling donations tins around the local pubs.
In December, wander around the neighbourhood singing christmas carols.

Well, you did ask...   :wink:

So that then leads to the logical conclusion of certain 'recreational' activities being undertaking in CABA.

Oh my, think of the chafing and O2 use!

Does not look real profesional, how about you do a proper B.A. exercise instead that will get your hearts pumping!

I'm all for fun nights but lose the B.A. sets!

Can just imagine what other services would say!

It all adds to the experience.

Also did you know that an inverted water extinguisher fits into a CABA set perfectly?

Makes for interesting water fights...

Just seems a waste of time why don't you try actual fire related tasks in breathing apparatus, plenty you can do!

Here's another idea why don't you train you guys how to don their PPE correctly as you have one guy with a flash hood on wrong and another in level 1 gear.

there is no rule that says BA = level3/Pbi Ba = use it when you can use the protection. so if you are protecting a house at a bushfire with huge smoke and you want the cool clean air that BA gives you use it for crying out loud don't say
" I can't I only have level 1 gear on"

BA was used by crews at the NSW Blue Mountains 2001 fires when it became an irrespirable atmosphere because of the smoke.I was the one who recommissioned them at Winmalee. :wink:

If you have to use it to save your life and your qualified go for it.

Bittenyakka your missing the point I'm saying if you are going to use your BA sets at training instead of just wearing it playing soccer why don't you get you guys to don their PPE correctly and train in procedures that they are going to use when they respond down the street to maximise the time spent at training as it is only once a week.

I hear what your saying but there is plenty they could do instead of just kicking around a ball i.e search and rescue procedures, door entries, hose work, using ladders and the list goes on.

If you are looking for an easy to setup BA drill here is one I ran last night.

Stay with me as it takes a bit of explaining;

Appliance is positioned at the rear of our station, crews begin about 5m away

1) Whistle blows, stopwatch starts and two operators head for the vehicle and don sets and start up, (penalties for not conducting a positive pressure test, negative pressure test, PPE not done up correctly etc etc)

2) High pressure line ran out approximately 40 metres, branch is placed inside a cone (if the branch drops on the ground it is a penalty)

Crews run to next stage approximately 10 metres away

3) Four full foam drums are carried approximately 20 metres and placed within coned off area

4) Pickup dead fred from nearby and correctly carry him approximately 60m around a series of cones

Fred is put down at next to a ladder

5) Pitch ladder against the station

6) Bowl out 2 lengths of 38mm hose, connect hose to hydrandt - connect branch and advance hose and brach up ladder, deliver small amount of water from top of ladder - second person foots ladder (penalties for any breaches of FGP's, not doing a leglock etc)

7) Crew then run back to the hydrant (approximately 20m) bowl out a 64mm hose and fill a plastic drum

8) Turn off 64mm hose, then head back to the ladder where the person that didn't go aloft the first time goes up, he advances the hose and delivers water from the top of the ladder(same penalties apply)

9) Strike the ladder and head back to the casualty, carry casualty back around the obstacles to where you originally picked him up from

10) Put down casualty at original spot, then pickup the four foam drums and take them back to their original spot

11) This brings you back to near where the high pressure line brach was - pickup the brach and take it back to the appliance

12) Clock stops when both crew touch the appliance

It all sounds a bit confusing I know, you really need to see it drawn out on the map to understand but it does actually work pretty well.

We managed to put 10 people through it last night and had times ranging from 12mins down to about 8 1/2. At the conclusion of each run we would go through the penalties and put them all up on the white board - originally we were going to add 10 seconds per penalty but we ended up just using it as an example for the next crews of what not to do.

Everyone involved said they enjoyed it, even though most of them were buggered after having run hard for about 10mins with BA on. It is definately something we will look at doing again.

For about 10 mins of setup work it is an easy way of getting people practicing actual fire fighting skills whilst working hard and still having fun.

If you want any more info let me know - happy to help.
