KWFD Inverted Position Practice


Key West Firefighters recently took part in inverted position training at Little Hamaca Park. This practice is done so the firefighters will be experienced when an emergency arises at a location with scaffolding or a radio tower and the firefighter has to be lowered to an injured victim. The descent is also useful when lowering a firefighter into a trench or tank to reach a victim.
