Repetition is the mother of learning
Firefighters are constantly learning – they listen carefully and write notes. The knowledge necessary to save people must be constantly refreshed: this rule is the same for both beginners and veterans whose experience has exceeded 20 years.
Practicing skills on the “fire tower” is an important event. You need to go through a fragile staircase, climb to the very top as quickly as possible, knock out a door or enter through a window. Doing this in equipment weighing about 8 kg (and with a compressed air apparatus – all 20) is not easy, so firefighters regularly visit the gym to keep themselves in good shape. Each part has a training room with barbells, dumbbells and exercise equipment. The duration and types of exercises are not regulated: everyone determines the load for himself, so as not to have problems with passing the standards.

It is important for firefighters to keep their cool (and therefore sanity) in any situation, so psychological training is regularly held for them. And these are not conversations with a psychologist at all, as someone might think. How do you, for example, such psycho-training: go through the fire in full gear and get out of the labyrinth of the heat and smoke chamber, where because of the black smog you can’t see beyond your own hand?
After the fire
When firefighters return to the unit from a call, they do not immediately go to rest. First you need to dry the sleeves, equipment, replace the faulty equipment and bring the fire equipment back to full combat readiness. .tonkosti.ru/sized/f550x700/6h/uu/6huu4j5htjwgg8k4kkowc00g8.jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
