Fire Department Conducts SCBA Training

The Cape Girardeau Fire Department on March 11 conducted training with our Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). Personnel went through a confidence-building course designed to challenge them with various obstacles, entanglements, and confined spaces, while operating in zero visibility. This training keyed in on maintaining good situation awareness, establishing communications and enhancing our problem solving capabilities in our assigned team structures. Training also included simulated mayday scenarios. We worked on response capabilities with an emphasis on proper communication and management of these situations.
