My station was alerted for a stove fire. I went or my gear and found the high pressure hose from the compressor under the squad. Initially I though it was hooked into the squad but it was just on the floor creating a trip hazard for approximately 1/3 of the members trying to get their gear. I gathered it up and put the hose in the SCBA room and inished getting dressed and on the squad. I put my bottle on and as we were going down the road, I pulled it out of the bracketand had an immediate high pressure leak. I shut the bottle off and notified the officer I had a malfunction and would not be bottled up. When we got back to the station it was determined that the cylinder had not beeen snapped back into the harness properly (Scott NxG2 Type SCBA). there had been a training fire the day before and the SCBA was not properly put back together. Thinking there may be other problems I checked the portable radios in the back and found one of them had a alow battery. For those keeping score, that is three close calls at one time.
1. Double check all gear ater trainiing fires and make sure it is put back together properly.
2. Watch your new members clsoely and make sure they know how to use and return equipment to service.
3. Never assume anything.
