Combat training for firefighters

Nineteen seconds — that’s all the time firefighters have to put on their gear. This is really not much time at all to prepare for a battle against scorching flames and suffocating smoke, however people’s lives depend on the speed and professionalism of these firemen. Tune in to this RTG programme to learn about a profession that not just anyone can hold — only those with a strong spirit, nerves of steel and a courageous heart.
