Today’s #TrainingMondays submission comes to us from FDNY Lt. Chris Bebard of Task Force 1, Inc. In this video, Bedard walks a firefighter through the process once in a side the room when doing VENT ENTER ISOLATE SEARCH (VEIS).
A fire service veteran of 19 years, Chris worked in FDNY’s Engine 88 in the Bronx for his first six years. After six years on the engine, he then worked at Ladder 38, also in the Bronx, for 7 years. He has been a Lieutenant for the past 3 years in Brooklyn and currently working in Ladder 107 in East New York. Lt. Bedard was involved in the PSS (bail out) system that the FDNY uses to this day with Captain Hayes of Ladder 38 and also Captain Tommy Dolan of Ladder 175 in Brooklyn.
