This training prop is designed to provide realistic challenges that may be encountered on the fire ground. The intent is to provide both a learning atmosphere to instruct the proper way to address certain situations and as a personal evaluation tool. Firefighters can personally judge their levels of confidence and competence. Several of the props are based on real-life fire ground scenarios.
