Submerged Firefighter Emergency training

“In the unlikely event of an emergency water landing, your turnout gear may be used as a flotation device". All jokes aside, this video should be required viewing and training for any firefighter who operates around water. It has great information regarding what to do in the event a firefighter falls into water in full gear and SCBA. 

This video was brought to our attention by a member of the Newport News FD Marine Incident Response Team. Great stuff and thanks for sharing.
