"Given that the culmative effects of heat & weight stress from all the equipment required in other NFPA standards, serious consideration should be given to the use of exoskeletons to reduce cardio vascular demands."

Read the Dale Brown novel "The Tin Man"... it just may be where this technology is headed!
Dale Brown is a former USAF F-111 Aardvark "crew dog" who writes novels in the military-technothriller genre.
His web site is www.megafortress.com"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."
