Lighting the scene during fire fighter training
Posted by Ventry Solutions, Inc. on
Practice and training are two of the most important things anyone can do, whether they are learning something new or simply wanting to improve. Now add in that you're a fire fighter and your job includes possibly having to save someone's life when time is of the essence. Wouldn't you want to make sure you train and practice as often as possible? Of course you would! Unfortunately it's not always easy when what you need to practice on is outside and the sun has gone down.
It can be easy though, as long as you have light. But not just any light will do. At minimum, the right type of light must:
- Light an entire scene;
- Be bright enough to see the small details;
- Set up quickly; and
- Be able to be placed anywhere it's needed (no matter the terrain).
Lentry® Lights meet all those criteria and more. One person can easily deploy a system where needed due to the all-terrain legs and gas powered generator (no cords to trip over), while a single light head easily lights a scene (even though more can be added) as see in the following pictures.
New Washington Volunteer Fire Department in Ohio has been gracious enough to send pictures of various training exercises they were able to hold in the evening, with help from their Lentry Lighting System (photos used with permission). Their system, Model 2SPECX-C23, consists of a 28,000 lumen V-Spec LED and a 2000W generator (now available with a 2200W generator). Since the LED only requires 336W, the generator has plenty of power leftover to run other tools. Click pictures to enlarge.
James took these next set of photos during fire department training that took place here at our facility one November evening. He and his fellow fire fighters were practicing bailing out of a second-floor window. This is something a fire fighter might be forced to do and practice helps!
During the training, an all-terrain Lentry Light lit the scene as if it were daylight. This reduced anxiety and let the fire fighters focus on overcoming their fears of heights.
The Lentry Generator & Light System being used here is model 1STARX. It stands up to 9 feet tall and has the 1000-watt generator, of which only 240 watts was needed to power the 20,000 lumen V-Star LED. Only a few pictures are shown here, but you can see all photos of this training on Facebook (no account needed).
