For many years, the “Out of Air” video, produced by the Firesmoke Coalition, has been a powerful training tool used to supplement progressive Air Management programs in fire departments across the world. The personal stories of those impacted by being “out of air” and the wisdom of fire service luminaries such as John Norman, John Mittendorf, Bobby Halton and the late Alan Brunacini spoke to the critical need of making air management a priority.
This webcast, sponsored by Dräger will review the key points in the video and evaluate what we’ve learned all these years later. Does the message apply in 2021 and what role does committed and effective Air Management play in ensuring firefighters can fulfill their mission in the hostile environment of smoke and fire.
