    In the smaller cabs it was easy. As you are moving your arms around putting on your SCBA, you arm can (and often did) hit the door handle. Ya, we're funny that way, we get dressed and then get on the truck and sit down....while seated we don the SCBA.

    Sounds like something a Phila lawyer scribed, and will this be a "guideline" or mandate ?
