Santa Barbara County Fire Department


USAR Equipment Review / Pre-Drill Orientation

The following digital photographs of Confine Space Rescue equipment was placed on display at Santa Barbara County Fire Station No. 11 on 11/24/04.

Personnel from both Santa Barbara County Fire Engine 11-B and Truck 11-B put together a comprehensive program that included moving firefighters from station to station. For each piece of equipment below, there was a separate station where firefighters had the opportunity to refresh their memory with the many pieces of equipment that have been researched and purchased by our departments OSHA Certified Confined Space Firefighters.

Below were the notes that were put together to simply describe when a confined space permit is required and what the definition of a confined space was.
