im always skeptical of someone I see with a facepiece on in the truck. just a bad practice.
Do you really expect to get off the truck and just make grab a hose/tools and run in? If you really can't take the time to put a mask and hood on, you need practice or your officer needs to take a chill pill and get a hold of himself.
What if you are doing exterior tasks, now you have this stupid thing on your face that is limiting your vision. No thanks, put it on when you'll be going on air and you won't have a fogging problem.

As others have stated dont mask up until you need to.
also next time you are at the haz-mat station, ask the tech guys for the fog wipes that are in the class a suits. they should have a ton of em lying around. they work great at preventing fog in you mask.
if you are not sure who the haz-mat tech guys are just cut the lights off the are the ones that glow.
