Why We Wear What We Wear

(You like the nice alliteration in the title?) This is a news story from CBS 5 News in AZ about a firefighter getting burned. I hope he recovers quickly.

Maybe this will help sell your department on Scott SCBA's.

Pretty amazing. How much does that all that gear weigh?

It depends on several things such as how much extra stuff the firefighter has in his pockets and the manufacturer of his gear but mine weigh about 60 pounds or so. Then you add in tools and a hose. It gets heavy but as the video shows, it's worth it.
