PRESS RELEASE - Preparing Yourself for the Petzl EXO Personal Safety System and the Gemtor Harness By LARRY COHEN, LIEUTENANT FDNY Ret.http://www.1strespondernews.com/webpages/news/displaynews.aspx?ID=eb50c1dc-3b0d-4976-8434-a97d059e072e
With the much anticipated, soon to be released, Petzl EXO Personal Safety System, (PSS) fire departments and firefighters should understand that there are certain bunker gear concerns, harness requirements and training issues that need to be addressed in order for the system to be properly attached and deployed correctly. FDNY and Petzl have designed this particular system to be worn on the outside of the firefighter’s protective pants, and under the turnout coat. The reason for this location is so it can be easily accessed and rapidly deployed, while at the same time protected from a fire environment by the protective coat. Thousands of hours have gone into the engineering and practical application of this device so that firefighters can safely exit a hostile environment in a burning structure.
During the weekend of February 28 and March 1 Saddle Brook firefighters conducted a hands on drill for their new bail out system. All active members of the department who seek interest in the Petzl bail out system took park in the practical training over the two day period. Fire Ground Technologies provided the training equipment and instructors fo

WILDWOOD — Firefighters attending the annual New Jersey State Firemen's Convention use the annual event to gear up.
From new trucks to water-rescue gear, the annual convention draws vendors from across the country hawking the latest in new equipment.
Sam Squire, of Mays Landing, sells heavy trucks manufactured by Pierce, based in Appleton, Wis. Fie said the convention is his biggest source of new clients in New Jersey.
Squire showed off a new canary-yellow truck made forthe Seaville Volunteer Fire Company in Upper Township.
"It's a combination pumper and rescue truck. Fire companies are having to multitask," he said. "Seaville covers part of the Garden State Parkway, so they respond to a lot of car accidents."
The $625,000 truck features a compartment with various hydraulic equipment to cut people out of damaged vehicles. And it has four winch slots to pull vehicles to safety, he said.
