    Didn't need rehab back then. Everyone was firep!$sers and hard workers.

    Come out get a full cylinder, blow your nose, grab a few puffs on a cigarette and get back inside.

    We had some of those black boxes on truck companies, before we switched to msa.

    Just to expand on the topic of using reflective materials in hoses, Mercedes Textiles promotes a special house coupling that includes highly-reflective arrows to assist firefighters in quickly finding the way out by looking at a coupling (even in very low-light situations). See demo...
