Trinity Fire fighting is the name given to the type of military unit used to contain large fires.
A team of specialist fire fighting personnel, known as the Firefighters and Life Guards, are responsible for fighting large, high-intensity fires, while the High-Intensity Flame Squad is responsible for containing large, low-intensity flames.
In a video released by the NSW Department of Fire and Emergency Services, Trinity firefighters and Lifeguards were seen working in tandem to contain a huge blaze in Sydney’s west in July last year.
The team had to use a large fire truck to get into position to put out the blaze in the city’s east.
“I’m not going to tell you who the hero is in this case because it is really difficult,” the NSW department said in the video.
This is a real life situation, so the people that are here are working very hard.
I would say that is the best example of teamwork, that is one of the reasons why I was elected fire chief, the NSW Fire and Rescue Minister, Nathan Guy, told ABC News.
Firefighting in Sydney is becoming increasingly reliant on the technology.
An increasing number of fire fighters are using new, high performance firefighting suits.
While the new suits have the ability to use the technology, the helmets are still made of Kevlar and not carbon fibre.
Some fire fighters have said that their helmets were made for military use and they did not know about the new technology, which is called the “light weight firefighting suit”.
A NSW Government spokesperson told ABC TV the new helmets would be available to all NSW Firefighters.
Meanwhile, the fire department in Brisbane said on Friday that the department was working with a “specialist military company” to develop a high performance, lightweight, carbon fibre helmet.
Dr Steve MacNeil, chief medical officer of the Brisbane Fire and Ambulance Service, said the helmet would be made by the Australian Defence Force and would “add significant value to the Brisbane fire service”.
He said it was important to ensure that the helmet “had the durability, fit and function” and “would help to mitigate the risks of helmet impact and wear”.
The helmet was due to be ready for public use next year.
