One-Man Ladder Setup and Roof Ventilation by Instructor 5 Productions

Firefighting Articles from Desert Diamond IndustriesWe’ve shown you how to make ventilation cuts in flat roofs and peaked roofs. Now your only problem is getting up onto the roof.

That’s not as simple as it sounds, especially when you’re short on manpower. That’s why we like this video from Instructor 5 Productions. It demonstrates how one man can get all the tools needed for ventilation – saw, hook, halligan and ladder – onto a residential roof. These techniques are unconventional, but in this era of slashed budgets and headcounts, they could also be the difference between life and death.

Remember, we’ll be at the FDIC 2013 firefighter conference in Indianapolis, IN from April 25 to 27! Visit us in Booth 9550 at the Lucas Oil Stadium. See our press release for details.
