BA Hose Kinking Investigation

  Posted on 28th April 2014 by Loralee Hyde in UFBA News

On 21 February, the New Zealand Fire Service put out a national safety alert notice advising brigades of an issue that arose at the National Training Centre involving a Draegar BA set. During training, the medium pressure hose bent, restricting the air being delivered to the wearer. It was brought to the attention of the Senior Leadership Team, and a level 2 investigation has been initiated. Paul McGill, Deputy National Commander Advised that the Fire Service will continue to keep brigades informed and requested that, in the interest of safety, any issues related to the medium pressure hose be sent immediately to in the first instance. The notice and related updates will continue to be available through Firenet.
