    Default Hood

    Back in the late 1980's, we were in a drought and I had small neck burns while fighting a grass fire.

    We did not have hoods then. Today, I ensure I wear a hood for wildland firefighting.

    Just because we have all this great technology to protect us does not mean we should cease using our brains, training, and experience. Sometimes conditions change faster that we can react and we need every bit of protection we can get.
