Firefighters Participate in Bailout Training

For the third consecutive Saturday, members of the Hillsborough Fire District took time out of their busy schedules to train with the new Sterling Bailout System. The bailout system is deployed when a firefighter cannot exit the structure that is on fire by the interior stairs, and there is no ladder at the window. This occurs when a firefighter gets into that position while searching for victims on the fire floor or above the fire, which is the most dangerous place to be.

Thank you to the firefighters for their commitment to their town and their commitment to their safety training!

Thank you to Pat, Doug and Pete, our instructors.
