FIREFIGHTER SURVIVAL

Becoming lost, trapped or in distress is the worst possible situation and the one most feared by all firefighters. However, learning skills to help recognizing these situations, becoming more proactive and help for firefighters to overcome these obstacles may greatly improve your chances of survival.

PETZL EXO PERSONAL ESCAPE SYSTEM BASIC TRAINING COURSE

The PETZL EXO Personal Escape System, also refered to as the FDNY Personal Safety System (PSS), is one of the most innovative products the fire service has seen in years. This system has been certified by UL and meets applicable NFPA standards. Due to the critical nature of the application, Petzl has required that all end users attend a basic training class. Petzl has certified First Due Training to administer this training.

First Due Training, in cooperation with Petzl, has the following Petzl EXO classes available:
