    Background: FIREMEN IN PARIS YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) SHOWED THE PEOPLE OF THE SUBURB OF COURBEVOIE HOW THEY USE HELICOPTERS WHEN FIGHTING OUTBREAKS IN HIGH CITY BUILDINGS.

    THE GIANT ESSO BUILDING WAS USED FOR DEMONSTRATION. A HELICOPTER APPROACHED LOWERING EQUIPMENT TO FIREMEN ALREADY ON TOP OF THE BUILDING. AIRBORNE ACTION ENABLED THEM TO GET AT THE SEAT OF THE "FIRE" AT ONCE INSTEAD OF FACING THE PERHAPS IMPOSSIBLE TASK OF ERECTING LADDERS.

    PHASE TWO OF THE EXERCISE SHOWED HOW PEOPLE TRAPPED IN A BUILDING COULD BE RESCUED. THEY SIMPLY MADE THEIR WAY TO THE TOP OF THE BUILDING THERE TO AWAIT RESCUE FROM ABOVE.
