Mission Specific Personal Protective Equipment:
Entering a burning building wearing personnel protective equipment specifically designed for water rescue operations seems farfetched. If that is the case, then why do fire personnel wear bunker gear next to or in the actual hot zone at water rescue incident?
Watch what happens when rescuers falls into a swimming pool wearing bunker gear and no PFD.
Be smart dress right from the start!
