Firefighting Eqpt

Firefighters respond to any emergency situation and also protect people, animals, the environment as well as property from any kind of accidents and emergencies. They typically work very closely with their community in order to increase their level of fire safety awareness that will help prevent fires and accidents from occurring.
 
Firefighters have to enter burning buildings through the roof, windows or even by breaking down a wall and buildings might even collapse and firefighters are therefore directly exposed to danger. In order for firefighters to do their jobs properly they need all the appropriate tools and equipment.
 
There are various tasks that a firefighter has to attend to in any emergency incident such as fires, accidents, floods, rescue trapped people and animals, clean up and check a site after the incident, rail and air crashes, inspect and maintain equipment as well as taking part in physical training and training on firefighting techniques and also undertake public education tasks such as school visits to name a few.
 
Firefighting equipment is generally divided into two categories namely medical emergency devices and search-and-rescue operations. In most situations firefighters need to wear all the appropriate and protective gear to keep them safe on the job. You most basic equipment is your helmet, pants, jacket, gloves and boots. The helmets are made from fire resistant plastic and are typically used to protect the firefighters head from any falling objects that occur in, for example, an abandoned building. The jacket and pants are also made from fire resistant material that keeps the firefighters from burning, the inner materials are usually waterproof to keep them dry. The jacket usually has stripes on it that are reflective and keeps them visible in the dark. The gloves are also designed to keep their hands from burning when touching hot surfaces. The boots have steel soles that prevents any injuries to their feet.
 
Firefighters always have to carry some extra tools when entering a building. Some of these tools are fire extinguishers to put out small fires, axes, flashlights, pike poles that are used to check walls and ceilings of a building and shovels to name a few.
 
Firefighting equipment covers all general firefighting equipment that is used to extinguish a fire. Some of this equipment is fire nozzles, fire hose couplings, hose reels, hoses, firefighting blankets, rescue ladders, sand buckets and of course the fire truck.
 
The fire truck is typically used to transport the firefighters and all their equipment to the location of an incident. The truck also functions as a very important device to collect and distribute water to put out a fire.
 
The fire hose couplings are usually metal pieces that are made from aluminum, stainless steel, brass or steel and are used to connect it to an extra fire hose or any fire hose applications. The fire hose is generally a high-pressure hose that firefighters use in order to extinguish a fire. These hoses are attached to the fire truck or fire hydrant.
 
Fire-fighting blankets allows for very quick fire fighting intervention to prevent a blaze and spreading of a fire. The blanket is used to smother the fire by depriving it from oxygen.
 
Fire nozzles are pieces of firefighting equipment that provide a constant flow and also allow the firefighter to select the appropriate flow rate and operating pressure.
 
The rescue ladder is used in times where they have to access a building through, for example, a roof. The ladder is always part of their firefighting equipment when they are on duty. The sand bucket is generally painted red and is a cheap, reliable and easy way to put out small fires.
 
Firefighting is a very dangerous and unsafe job and firefighters put their lives on the line to save others. The danger might not always be a fire but the lack of training, skills; poor decisions and the absence of the appropriate safety equipment.
