A firefighter training apparatus includes a sled base having a plurality of sled runners and an upright post attached to the base. The upright post is slidably attached to the base for adjusting the height of the post. A pole is attached to the post with a pole-to-post attaching mechanism which pole is movable against a resistance force so that pushing the pole against the resistance force provides an exercise routine for a firefighter simulating the breaching of a ceiling. The sled base has a section of firefighter's hose attached thereto which can be grasped by the firefighter for pulling the firefighting training apparatus to simulate the pulling of a fire hose. The base also has removably attachable weights for increasing or decreasing a load pulled by the firefighter. A pair of straps is attached to the sled base for a firefighter to pull to simulate removing of victims from a hazardous environment.
