    I think the intent here might have been to warn you about some backlash from the more senior members at the department. Sometimes these "new" or "safety" precautions can be met with some ridicule because the new generation "doesn't get it" or are "soft", at least thats what I think he might be eluding to, just a guess though.

    Just because the guys may ridicule the information doesn't mean its bad info and not worth posting, i say go for it!!

    My list so far.

    1 wash gear after all fires. Including your helmet!
    2. Shower after fires. Cold water first to rinse yourself off. Not hot first since it will open your pores up.
    3. Keep idling to a minimum in the bays. If you are idling in the bays have both bay doors open all the way. If prolonged idling move out of bays.
    4. Use SCBA during overhaul. Use air monitoring to know when it's safe to remove SCBA
    +1 on washing all gear. Circul-Air offers a great washer and dryer; www.firehousegoods.com
