    1. Fire Ground SurvivalEmergency SCBA Operations & Mayday Procedures

    2. The major causes of firefighter fatalities inside structure fires are: • Lost inside the structure • Structural collapse • Fire progress (including back draft and flashover) • Most fatalities are due to running out of air (smoke inhalation)

    3. Are we prepared if we are lost, trapped, or separated from our crew? Practical Drills • Mayday Procedures/Fire Ground Survival • SCBA Emergency Operations • Firefighter Rescue

    4. NIOSH RecommendationsMayday Procedure • Transmit a distress signal • Activate PASS device • Conserve air • Stay calm and avoid unnecessary physical activity • Determine potential escape routes • Stay in radio contact • Flashlight toward the ceiling • Make tapping noises with a tool on the floor or wall

    5. “GRAB LIVES” Procedure • G – Gauge (check air) • R – Radio (mayday) • A – Activate (pass) • B – Breathing (control) • L – Low (stay low) • I – Illuminate (flashlight) • V – Volume (make noise) • E – Exit (find an exit) • S – Shield Airway (hood or glove)

    6. Radio “Mayday” • Use communications model to get IC’s attention • Radio “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday, Command from Engine 1” • IC will clear the air for emergency traffic for the Mayday

    7. Radio “Mayday” • Radio your Name, Unit #, and your PLAN • P – Problem • L – Location • A – Air • N – Needs • “This is Firefighter Jones from Engine 1. I’m separated from my crew. I’m in a closet in the basement. My air is1500. I need a crew to lead me out.”

    8. Mayday Procedures • IC will activate the RIT/RIC to location • IC will also notify interior crews to search for the missing FF or crew • IC will instruct the missing FF or crew to activate PASS, turn on flashlight, and make noise

    9. EMER Button • Only use the EMER Button if you cannot verbally report a Mayday • EMER activation will be treated as a Mayday • Takes the user to an EMER talk group • Comm. Center notifies IC and attempts to contact the user

    10. 5 Reasons to Call a Firefighter Emergency/MAYDAY • Separated from Crew or “Lost” • SCBA Malfunction or Low Air • Injured or Disabled • Trapped, Pinned, or Entangled in Debris • Any life threatening condition that cannot be resolved in 30 seconds

    11. Rule of Air Management (ROAM) • Know how much air you have in your SCBA • Manage your air so that you leave the hazardous environment BEFORE your low air alarm activates • Report “Team Air” with your CANA radio reports

    12. Practical Skills • Mayday Procedures/Fire Ground Survival • Emergency SCBA Operations • Firefighter Rescue See you there!
