Vent Enter Search

Vent Enter Search – one of the most hazardous tasks on the fire ground! Performed only when there is even the slightest chance of saving of someone’s life.

VES is performed when Firefighters make quick entry into a building and perform a quick primary search closest to the hazardous area. Hoselines are normally never taken in and the firefighters doing this don’t have the protection of water. It’s a high-anxiety move that is both extrememly physically and mentally challenging.

While nothing in a gym can even remotely replicate the feeling of a VES – we’ve created a workout that attempts to be equally physcially and mentally demanding. Just be thankful you are not doing this with your bunker-gear on in a near-flashover environment.

4 Rounds for time of the following;

20 Dumbbell Snatches (10 each side – 50lb DB)

20 Renegade Rows (10 each side – 30lb DB)

30 Sit-ups

30 Squats (body-weight)
