Cutting With Torches

Here's another wrap-up from the 2013 BGSU State Fire School heavy rescue class.  In this pit the students had the opportunity to use a Petrogen torch and a slice pack.  The Fire Cam videos were taken by Austrian FF Bernd Altinger as he used both torches.  The audio is not great because he had the underwater seal on the camera for the in-water pit later that day.  The water pit wrap-up coming within the next few days.

What torch do you have on your rig?  If you had to pick one, which would it be?  Why?

These videos are not necessarily great for initial teaching because of the sound, so be sure to get some seasoned guidance before burning your first time.
