California, like other states may have some places
that may be behind and stuck in the "old skool".
But not the entire state.

I can't tell if you are serious or exhibiting a little tongue in cheek humor!
I heaved a few wooden ground ladders during my basic firefighter training at the Fire Academy, including a 50 footer...talk about heavy and labor intensive. Properly cared for, they can last as long if not longer than aluminum and composite ladders. I know of a few FD's that have wooden ladders that have passed annual testing while their aluminum and composite ones failed!
Tactical tupperware? No thank you, I love my leather!
Black turnouts? Who cares about the color..it's the level of protection that counts!
It doesn't matter if its "old skool" or "new skewl"...fire is an unforgiving taskmaster!"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

weight on my head. Peace...
