Firefighter Mayday Training

A look at mayday training in Spokane

Spokane Fire Department Training Division

Firefighters from Spokane and surrounding fire departments use an acquired structure to conduct multi-unit drills focused on mayday operations.

In one of the scenarios presented firefighters respond to a mayday call for a firefighter who has fallen through a floor.

Using a smoke machine and lighting instructors can create near-realistic fire conditions in order to create approximate stressful conditions.
