The VOL Escape Kit was developed as an affordable and effective escape kit for firefighters in areas with two and three story buildings. Most firefighters were taught in the Stay Alive classes to bail out using rope, a carabineer, and gloves as a friction device. We have taken this concept and one step further! Included in the kit is the FESH Hook, 40' of 8mm NFPA escape rope, and a 1000 Denier Nylon bag. The bag fits in your pocket, belt, or SCBA Harness.
The idea is that there is no waste of precious time looking for an anchor point with the FESH hook. your anchor point is at the window. As taught in your Stay Alive classes, you will wrap the rope around your body and bail out using your hands as a friction device.
