    Default Question

    When you respond to an AFA and your jacket isnt zipped up do to rushing to get on the truck, should you put the pack on before zipping up or after you zip up at the scene when there is reported nothing showing. today this has happened to me and some young buck of a kid tried saying that I should have packed up right away.

    I"m not sure I understand the problem. Zip the coat, put on the pack while enroute, come off of the rig ready to go. Zipping the coat takes all of 10 seconds, why would you have to wait to get to the scene??
