On 30 September ETS Emergency Training Solutions (PTY) LTD will host their annual 2021 Competition for fire fighters.
“We look forward to the competition and hope that everyone will have an enjoyable day!” said the management and staff of ETS.
Throughout the year the participants have to keep their wits about them to beat the challenges they face in minimising emergency risks, and during the competition it is time to hone their skills against like-minded peers in a practical way. The course demands stamina, grit and determination from the contestants. The resident medic will be on duty to deal with any incidents on the day.
The Toughest Fire Team Event will see participants in full bunker gear transferring 20 wooden blocks from one stack to another using a hydraulic spreader; crawl through 3 x 250 ℓ drums wearing the SCBA harness and tanks (not face assembly); run and roll up a 65mm x 30m fire hose neatly; drag a stretcher with a 50kg dummy over a distance of 50m; drag a tyre over 50m; drag a 50kg wheeled extinguisher over a distance of 50m and extend a fully charged 65mm hose line as far as they can, before opening the nozzle and hitting a target with the water stream.
Due to risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic, the Main Event will be on the fireground with scenarios that don’t require SCBA. The Individual Skills Event will involve specialised knots with a limited length of rope.
Participants can expect some surprises along the way with lots of trophies and gifts, so that no one goes home empty-handed.
