Tactical Fire Problem – Rescue on spiral staircase

This week the tactical problem is a rescue from a lower floor or basement area. This is a child and an extremely narrow spiral staircase.

There are no specific questions this week, I am just planting the thought in your head. If you think because it is a child this will be an easy rescue, I think you might be fooling yourself. Some of these ornamental special stairways can be as small as 22 inches and every piece of gear you have, and your tools will get snagged. Think about how you will handle rescues in a variety of architectural features.
