Burned Amador Firefighter Returns Home
#1 Nov 30, 2007
That's too bad that he got burned. At least he is now on the road to recovery. My only concern is if the rest of his body didn't get burned due to having his wildland gear on, why wasn't he wearing his shroud and goggles down and covering his face like should have been? This whole thing could have possibly been prevented if all the gear was where it was supposed to have been.

Scott, glad you are doing well and praying for a speedy recovery. Thank you to you and all the other firefighters that serve us day in and out.

The Army supplied me with gas masks and helmets during the riots. But the masks were restrictive and the helmets heavy.
So you choked on a lot of tear gas and got hit in the head with rocks occasionally.
Sometimes you just don't wear the damned equipment.

Considering the shroud and hotshield are neither heavy or restrictive, there's no excuse to not wearing it but just being lazy. It's all issued PPE for a specific reason and never will do any good when it's tucked under the helmet. Oh well....I bet he thinks twice about putting it down next season and actually using it. Like I said, least he's ok though, that's the main thing. Just pisses me off to see a fellow firefighter hurt from something that is so easy to prevent
