Hosted by Orlando Willis. Tools and equipment are vital to a firefighter’s job. However, accidents can happen if the firefighter is not properly trained in the use and care of tools and equipment. Poorly maintained tools and equipment can be very dangerous and result in costly accidents to firefighters in the station and at the emergency scene. NFPA 1500 stresses the importance of safety in every aspect of tools and equipment design, construction, purchase, usage, maintenance, inspection, and repair.
