    Ya know what... talking to line guys & officers who have been on the job more than 25 years will be able to talk of the more recent changes. BA's are a very modern change from the last 30+ years, as are the gear styles & materials. I would say the basic function of our apparatus would be among the least impressive unless you get into pumping more water per minute. Talking to the older (read "seasoned") guys should yield some great information to get started at least. Good luck!
    Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong
