What every Fireman should know to be safe. It is the responsibility of every Fireman to keep your equipment in proper working order. Many departments are unaware of the need to service the filtering systems on the SCBA air filling machines which can lead to dangerous contamination of the Fireman's air supply.
This failure has lead to LODD's in departments across the country which is unacceptable and easily remedied .
Be aware, stay safe and always take responsibility for the equipment you use.
