Build A Fire Training Roof Prop

Many departments have a roof prop available at their training grounds, but it is not always convenient to use.   It's nice to have something compact available at the station that can be used for practice.  The guys are always asking me to help them build something and I have found several sites that have some good pictures and diagrams which can be used to help build your own roof training prop.

Fire Engineering has some good articles with photos.  Here are some good links listed below:

Adjustable Roof Prop

Ventilation Prop

There are also quite a few posts out there regarding roof props on the fireengineering.com forums.

Some more pictures of three different props at the DCFD training facility are posted at www.vententersearch.com

For a variety of pictures of inexpensive training props, you can check out this document from the Indiana Dept of Homeland Security. It contains close up pictures and estimated costs to build.
