This one's for all the Airport FF's. I have reciently seen the new ARFF boots by Ranger (I think) and have been trying to get our dept to get them since, but to no avail, so I was hopeing some of my brothers out there would give me some good arguements to use. I know JP-8 (jet fuel) can break down the protection of standard structual boots and in our training pits we fill them up with jp-8 then do an attack, so our boots are always submerged in the fuel (and water) but I guess this wasn't enough for our upper management. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
