    WHAT FIRE?
    This might be a dumb question. Why do instructors pound into our heads in class to wear proper PPE until their face is blue but, when it comes to the practice burns They come in with this glory boy, half dressed 3/4 boot, old style coat, no hood? I under stand alot of people use to wear this stuff but there has to be a reason we wear what we do now. No disrespect wcfpd2601, but if we're going to preach it, lets do it ourself.

    Uhh, looks like a hood to me. Just around his neck.

    And uh, just why is it that firefighters die in flashovers?
    Lack of fire behavior knowledge, or that they cant feel that heat building around them, due to being encapsulated in the bunker gear?

    Who are we to judge another dept, and how they operate?

    Glory boy...wow. I'm don't know wcfpd, but I sure didn't get the impression he was a glory hound.

    Yes I did see the hood, I was just making the general statement of what I have seen over my years with teachers coming in with gear that is nothing like what they just got done preaching about us using. And since they were the "teacher" the rules meant nothing to them.
    And if the standards are going away from 3/4 boots and long coats, should that say something.

    Once again, I ment no disrespect to wcfpd and was not calling him a glory boy but, just using it as an example of attitudes that I've seen in the field.

    it makes them look cool and old school if they wear it....

    course, doesnt do much good if they preach proper PPE to the students and what not yet dont follow it themselves...

    and I'm not saying 3/4's isnt proper PPE. Most studies show it the be the exact opposite, but, dont preach one way and then do the exact other

    just my .2 cents

    and for the record, I do love my 3/4's

    Latest one of me... Taking up from an arson job.

    And no, PPE police, I'm not wearing a hood, nor do I ever outside of training. Time to duck and cover!!!
