Assisted by the stretcher bearers.</li></ul>In order to deal the most efficient way with any emergency situation, a quick and adequate response is essential. Therefore the good knowledge of your duties and equipment is essential. As part of the response team you should be familiar with both of them.<br />ESCAPE ROUTES<br />centercenter<br />16510234315<br />The Self Contained Air Breathing Apparatus<br />PURPOSE: <br />This SOP outlines the procedures to ensure that equipment is in the “ready to use status” and is used correctly. It also ensures that personnel stay familiar with that equipment. <br />PRIMARY RULES: <br />SCBA must only be used in an emergency situation and only by trained personnel <br />Never use breathing apparatus on your own. Always work in pairs <br />Breathe normally <br />Be comfortable <br />Check your apparatus visually <br />Perform the “positive” and “negative” tests. <br />36652203317240DEFINITIONS: <br />Second-stage regulator (SSD):what attaches the supply-air tube to the face mask (see picture).<br />-222255991860Airflow controller:<br />membrane at the bottom of regulator (see picture).<br />Provides an increased flow of air to the face mask (*). Used if breathing is laboured. Can also be used to clear fogging in face mask or a burst of air to cool face. <br />User can control amount of air entering face mask. Gently push on membrane to open.<br />(*)Beware of increased air consumption. Check pressure gauge !<br />The Self Contained Air Breathing Apparatus<br />Purge valve - silver button on the side of SSD.<br />Press to stop delivery of air to the face mask and to purge the delivery hose.<br />PROCEDURES:<br />Step 1 -INSPECT SCABA BEFORE DONING <br />• Visually inspect equipment. Check condition of mask (facemask, head harness & lens for cuts, scratches, missing buckles), backpack (straps & buckles for cuts, tears), cylinder (dents, gouges), hoses (cuts, cracks, bulges), SSD (damage, debris). Disregard any SCABA with any obvious damage.<br />Step 2 - PRELIMINARY TESTS<br />To be done prior donning the SCABA.<br />40379657197090Bottle pressure test: fully open the bottle and check the pressure. Reading should be between 250 and 300 (We are using 300bar pressurized bottles). Replace bottle if below 250.<br />High pressure leak test close cylinder valve and watch manometer pressure should not drop with more than 5bars every 10 seconds.<br />If both tests are O.K open again cylinder valve.<br />Remember: when replacing bottle separate empty bottles from the full bottles’ rack to avoid any misunderstanding.<br />47625001004570The Self Contained Air Breathing Apparatus<br />Step 2 - DON THE SCABA<br />Don the cylinder and backpack, adjust straps and waist belt to ensure correct and comfortable fit. <br />Ensure the pressure indicator is in a position so the dial is easy to read. Ensure straps are not twisted and hoses are not routed through harness webbing. <br />Step 3 - PERFORM TESTS <br />Don the face mask and adjust straps to correct fit, starting from the two chin straps and then working your way up. <br />Breathe normally; as the bottle is still open air supply will automatically open as soon as you start breathing. Stay calm and do not panic.<br />Perform the negative test. Close the bottle completely with one hand and keep your hand in stand-by position on the knob. Inhale normally and slowly. With your other hand check the pressure gauge. As you breathe the pressure will decrease. Once reaching the orange zone on the gauge an audible signal will be emitted (audible alarm test).<br />53568607697470As the pressure reaches zero, the facemask, is fitted correctly, will collapse against your face. If not, make further adjustments of the straps and retry. <br />Turn cylinder valve back on and breathe normally.<br />Perform the positive test (leak test). While breathing normally, insert a finger under the edge of the face mask and create a deliberate leak. Doing this should cause a high airflow from this point.<br />DO NOT USE IF EITHER OF THESE TESTS FAIL<br />The Self Contained Air Breathing Apparatus<br />Remember: do not yet fit the facemask and breathe your precious oxygen if you have to walk to the emergency scene. Proceed to the zone with the facemask’s neck strap around your neck and FIT IT AT THE LAST MINUTE, JUST BEFORE ENTERING THE DANGEROUS ZONE.<br />Step 4 REMOVING THE SCBA <br />Ensure purge valve is closed. <br />Loosen head harness straps and remove facemask. <br />Turn cylinder valve clockwise to OFF position.<br />Undo the waist belt and loosen shoulder straps. Remove apparatus. <br />Release any air trapped in the system by pushing on the airflow controller (membrane). <br />Fully extend facemask straps.<br />Bring back equipment to safety station.<br />PARTS OF THE SCABA<br />BCEDFGHIJK<br />Pressurized bottle 300Bar<br />Backpack<br />Bottle knob/First stage regulator<br />Pressure gauge<br />Second stage regulator connection<br />Facemask<br />Shoulder straps<br />Waist strap<br />Head straps<br />Neck strap<br />The Self Contained Air Breathing Apparatus<br />FIREFIGHTER’S EQUIPMENT:<br />Jacket & SCABABoots & Trouser<br />Safety HelmetGloves FlashlightLifelineEmergency axe<br />LIFELINE SIGNALS (OATH method)<br />SignalAbreviationBy wearerTo wearer1 pullO stand for OKEverything is O.KIs everything O.K ?2 pullsA stand for AdvanceGive me more slackI give you more slack.3 pullsT stand for Take BackPick up the slackI pick up the slack.4 pullsH stand for HelpHelp me out immediately !Come out immediately !orHelp is on the way.<br />Fire & Fire Extinguishers<br />FIRE TRIANGLE<br />2838451052195<br />The 3 elements needed to produce a fire are:<br />A source of ignition – HEAT<br />Something that will burn – FUEL<br />A support for combustion –AIR<br />Fire says…… whenever you find me, inform the fire service department by means of the general alarm, Restrict me by making fire safe zones and compartmentation by means of passive fire protection (closing door), and Extinguish it with active measures.5428615153035DISCOVERING A FIRE<br />FindInformRestrictExtinguish<br />FIRE CLASSIFICATIONS<br />Fire & Fire Extinguisher<br />TYPE OF EXTINGUISHERS<br />751840775970<br />13779505986145EXTINGUISHERS COMMON FEATURES<br />Fire & Fire Extinguishers<br />USE FIRE EXTINGUISHERS (PASS Procedure)<br />Powder extinguisher<br />Foam extinguisher / gun<br />378142574803030067256592570-361956645275<br />29641807570470<br />Fire & Fire Extinguishers<br />CO2 extinguisher<br />REMEMBER with CO2 fire extinguishers:<br />Never hold nozzle with bare hands, use hand grip ( risk of burns).<br />Never use in an enclosed space without SCABA ( risk of suffocation).<br />4540885702310-238125191770<br />Water extinguisher<br />20828076835<br />Use the P.A.S.S method<br />FIRE HOSES<br />
