  1. Isn't most of the weight of the SCBA supposed to sit on your hips instead? I doubt there is a weight or ergonomic difference between Scott and MSA>

  3. How would you integrate directional labels into the IC structure? And you'd have to teach firefighters how to use a compass I would guess.
  4. I think Eastchester Volunteer Fire Department only exists only on paper now. Used to be a huge volunteer department and that house used to be a volunteer house.
  5. I was being sarcastic about the going from firefighter to Commissioner part.
  6. Well, the new Commissioner will be more in touch with the guys....he's got 12 years on the job and went straight from Firefighterto Commissioner.

  8. Since when do we leave our downed brother and venture off? If your brother is low on air, you probably are too. You're just dumping off air equalizing bottles. How are you going to save somebody if you can't save yourself. You're making yourself another victim, I think the money is better spent on a RIT pack and crew.
  9. How old is the current Tower Ladder?
  10. How is gas leaking from a stove Con Ed's problem? Shouldn't the resident just turn off the gas and call a plumber?
  11. That's what I was thinking. I love the idea though, but it would take balls for someone to actually implement this. And how would you determine what is legit and what is not?
