Halesite Trains on New PETZL Bail Out System

Sunday, August 7, 2011

Twenty members of the Halesite Fire Department trained on the new PETZL bail out system at Huntington Manor Fire Department's Station #3 today. Members trained for seven hours on Sunday and practiced different bail out techniques a total of ten separate times. This involved hooking up inside a simulated structure two floors high and "bailing out" head first.

PETZL, in cooperation with the FDNY, developed this system to provide firefighters with a state-of-the-art “bail out” device that is capable of rapid deployment under severe conditions. The PETZL system utlizes sophisticated climbing gear that has been specially modified for the fire service.

Pictured above is Commissioner Frank Stalzer of the Halesite Fire Department using the PETZL system during bail out training.
