As a veteran firefighter of 30 years, I’ve had the misfortune of personally experiencing the effect of disorientation on the fireground, coupled with the loss of air.
I was unable to think clear enough to differentiate the male from the female coupling rocker lug. I was forced to leave the hoseline and was fortunate to locate and exit through a window. This is how the LifeCrown came about by the way of personal fireground experience and tragic loss. It was only after the line-of-duty death of a brother firefighter. The two captains that exited the burning apartment in the high-rise had 54 years of experience between the two, one passed and the other survived.
I knew something had to be done, so I created a (Exit Indicator Device) that significantly enhances a firefighters chance to survive. Firefighters today are still being trained to go to the coupling, the same as I was trained in 1983. Firefighters deserve better than a 50/50 chance.
With the LifeCrown on your attack lines your chances significantly improve. When time is not a option…
