The Baldwinsville Bail Out Kit:
Firefighters have used it to bail out of burning buildings. The idea behind the bag was to provide a low profile rope deployment system that was easy to use and affordable. The bag sits in the bunker pants pocket with the yellow strap hanging outside the pocket. When you run into a critical situation, reach down and pull the bag out of the pocket. Grab the carabineer, which is laced through the snaps in the bag, and pull it until the snaps come undone. Holding the carabineer, throw the bag out the window. The rope will deploy until there is none left. Find a place to anchor. (Tool in the corner - fixed object, ect...) Either use a descender and a harness to rappel or use the method of placing the rope around the lower back using your hands as a friction device.
If you can not get out of a building - use the bag as a mayday bag. Throw the bag out the window using the same method. Your SOG's should state that if the firefighter does not descend out the window - he or she is in need of help. You at least have a location of the downed firefighter.
