The Chili Fire Explorers drilled on roof ventilation concepts Saturday morning.  The explorers learned about the purposes of roof ventilation, roof ladders, ladder nomenclature, tools used in roof ventilation, and how to safely work on roofs.  Explorers practiced making roof cuts with pick-head axes with the lower roof simulator before moving up to the upper level of the roof simulator to test their skills.  As part of learning how to work safely on a roof, the explorers also learned how to trust in their safety equipment, specifically ladder belts, when used properly.  Click on the photo below for more pictures from today's training or go to our Photo Gallery page for more pictures.
