A crucial piece of gear firefighters carry on their pants is a Gemtor belt, which is used for repelling and the rescue of trapped firefighters, but how often is it used other than holding up our pants? After PMFD were encountered with a true down firefighter over the weekend at a local fire, we felt it necessary to train with them. PMFD teamed up with firefighters from Philadelphia and Camden New Jersey Departments, along with Safety & Survival Training Network to train with our equipment we wear everyday. “The more we sweat in training, the less we bleed in battle”
