    That was not the first week. The first week is 40 hours of human resources showing poorly acted training video after training video...that's the real test.

    Good show.

    I thought the first on-the-job injury is usually caused by repeat stress injuries from signing forms for the first 40 hours

    I haven't gotten the chance to watch the video yet but I'm guessing that you are referring to the new updated gear that has the built in drag harness in case a f/f goes down. If this is the case my question is what year is your department operating in? lol...If I'm wrong, sorry please let me know.

    If you look at the girl on the far right of the poster you'll see a black thing where her collar should be. I've seen this in other videos of California firefighters.

    its always good to look before talking....

    No problem. I know it's good to look before talking but I did not know where to look because you never said where you saw it. lol. That's why I put in the disclaimer. Sorry I was wrong.

    Be careful, they're warning people for making jokes around these parts. Reality shows are serious bidness.

    Looks awesome, I am watching it now. Only thumbs down I give is a gas burn building in an otherwise awesome looking facility.

    Good stuff.

    I think she just has a black flash hood on and rolled down. There is no special California Firefighter PPE out there that I know of.

    I think that might be it. I have a black hood and I usually don my hood, then my coat, and then roll the hood back down over the collar. It ends up almost looking like a turtle neck.

    Surely Bou, they do put on Bronzer before the show don't they? You have a rep to uphold out there!

    Does that mean that they put on some white powder before they show the Canadians on TV
