    Default Cooling Firefighters core temps

    Saw this as a link on the side bar of the forums and was wondering if anyone else has tried this cooling method.

    It only takes a few seconds to roll your bunker pants down while you are sitting -I always encourage that also. I think anyone who has worked any time in the heat knows that cool water on the wrists works wonders. I like having a 12 pack cooler with a stack of "beauty shop" towels on the engine, flip it open and give it a shot of water from the cooler and put it on your neck.
