While at a live fire training at a neighboring cities training academy I had an SCBA failure prior to making entry to the burn building. The high pressure hose from the pressure regulator that attached to the over the shoulder pressure guage detatched. I had already completed 2 evolutions prior to this failure. Thankfully this happened prior to making entry for a 3rd evolution. This was a cheap lesson on checking your SCBA daily more than just air and functionality of the pass and regulator. As a side note the SCBA’s were just serviced by our local vendor. Hopefully this can raise awareness on a routine task that could have had a bad outcome had it failed in the live fire training.
Check all of your equipment thouroughly on a daily basis!
