Fire Service Training. Rope Practices. (Revised).
North Carolina State Dept. of Community Colleges, Raleigh.
One of a set of fourteen instructional outlines for use in a course to train novice fireman, this guide covers the topic of rope usage. Developed from and designed to be used with the Brady Firefighting Service Transparencies on rope and the International Fire Service Training Association Manual No. 101, "Forcible Entry, Rope and Portable Extinguisher Practices" (see note), it refers to the appropriate page and figure numbers of the Manual and transparency numbers as guides. Specific directions, as part of a combination lecture and practical application method of teaching, are given to the instructor for demonstrating techniques and testing students, but it is noted that because of the broad scope of the outline, modifications will be needed for its use by particular fire departments. Placing emphasis on how and where rope is used, its limitation, and care, the portion of the course covered in this outline has as its objective the fireman's proficiency in tying all the basic knots and securing a number of items to be raised or lowered by ropes without assistance. A list of required materials is also included. (An outline of the whole course covering all fourteen topics briefly is provided in the first item of the set, CE 016 662.) (ELG)
