    Below is an article (not sure how old) on falling into the water with bunker gear on. I remember years ago this was something we talked about, but we never actually trained on it. I did want to try it in my pool at home but never did.

    Im pretty sure, as my post was, that the PFD comment was a direct jab at the thread about SFFD and the multiple auto fires.
