This week Camp Merrill Fire personnel along with base safety, TMC, field medics, and flight crew participated in an annual mass casualty drill for the 5th Ranger Training Battalion. This is an annual exercise in order to certify personnel and keep skills current. Drills such as this one helps to maintain interoperability and good working relationships with each department involved.

Camp Merrill Fire personnel participated in live fire training this week on the rotary wing aircraft firefighting simulator. Crews were rotated through each position of nozzle, crew chief, rescue, and driver operator. Tactical objectives included proper apparatus positioning, water supply, fire suppression and pilot/crew rescue. These skills must be practiced and maintained in order to support the aircraft mission at Camp Merrill.

Camp Merrill is home to a medevac squadron which operates the Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter. The Camp also supports a number of rotary wing aircraft squadrons located throughout the state that use the area for training missions.

CMFD personnel trained on the Skyhook Rescue Systems Winch.

Training covered set up, operation, and use of the rescue winch and all associated equipment used for low angle rescue.

Because of Camp Merrill’s remote location in the North Georgia mountains, there is a need to be equipped for low angle rescue operations.

CMFD fire personnel trained on using Pneumatic Rescue Air Bags on this brisk morning.

These air bags can be used for a wide array of emergency rescue operations and are capable of lifting heavy loads with ease and efficiency. They work off the air from SCBA breathing air cylinders.

Just a few of the applications that air lifting bags can be used for include:
- Lifting and up-righting overturned vehicles
- Person(s) pinned under a heavy object (e.g. tractor trailer, train, vehicle, etc.)
- Rescue/recovery after collapses
- Forcing solid objects apart
- Providing a seal for leaking pipes drums or other cylindrical containers

CMFD carries these bags on the primary response engine, and all equipment necessary for their operation such as regulators, spare air cylinders, hoses, and fittings. These air bags have lifting capacities ranging from 15 tons all the way up to 41 tons.
