Here is a video from our friend Dale Pekel that shows a technique for rescuing a firefighter through a floor. Everyone has their own thoughts and methods for different types of rescues and this one is no different. It is not applicable for all downed firefighters but has a place in your tool box.
Take this and train and use it for your department. Thanks to Dale for making these videos and stay safe out there.
