Fire department trains for RV emergencies


This video is interesting because it raises a point that most RVers never think of: How emergency medical or other personnel would act if summoned to an RV when their help was urgently needed.

For example, think about the exterior and interior doors of RVs. Might a fire department have problems fitting its equipment through such a small space? An ill person who might be easily placed on a gurney in a normal residence might not be so easily handled when in the smaller confines of a recreational vehicle.

This video is from a fire department training exercise in Genesee County, New York.

This makes me think. Why isn’t there a small “Hazard Propane” sticker on the bay door of RVs marking where the propane cylinder and shutoff is for emergency personnel?? One would think that DOT and NFPA would require it.


I would like to see a video of several tips/tricks to exit easily from the emergency exit windows.
