DrRatchet: told him that removing his air mask was not 'a smart move.'Probably true. Had he lost consciousness or was otherwise disabled by combustion gasses, they BOTH would have died. This is why they tell you on airplanes to put on your own oxygen mask before you put on your child's. You won't be able to help your child if you are unconscious or dead.
Fluorescent Testicle: Zero tolerance = Zero brain cells.
Atomic Spunk: As a reward for his bravery and selflessness, she should give him a blowjob.
Joshudan: Atomic Spunk: As a reward for his bravery and selflessness, she should give him a blowjob.While he wears the air mask
CitizenTed: I am sick and tired of all these firefighters making judgement calls based on years of experience under trying conditions to save the lives of the people in their district. This kind of garbage needs to stop NOW. We don't need brave men making tough calls; we need weak-chinned bureaucrats whining about details. It's the only way communities like Philadelphia will ever move forward and achieve greatness.
You Idiots: Was she hot?
AssAsInAssassin: I'm confused. This is Fox "News."
lordargent: In before all of the people from the lifeguard thread.// hi folks :D
BronyMedic: He removed his mask in an IDLH environment. If the department didn't investigate or - atleast on paper - look like they were making an effort to investigate, the unions and OSHA would have a field day with it.
BronyMedic: lordargent: Curious, they don't have a second mask, like SCUBA divers?Modern SCBAs have secondary connections - Rapid Intervention Team connectors, where they can plug in a secondary air bottle to a downed firefighter's regulator and give him supplemental supply, and "Buddy Breathing" lines where a firefighter can share his pack's air supply with another firefighter who's in trouble, but the don't carry secondary masks. Your goal is to get a victim out and into safety as fast as possible, and let the First Responders and medics go to work on him or her.
Sentient: BronyMedic: He removed his mask in an IDLH environment. If the department didn't investigate or - atleast on paper - look like they were making an effort to investigate, the unions and OSHA would have a field day with it.Yep. They're not going to fire him for doing a decent job under rough conditions, but they are bound by all sorts of obligations to take it seriously. The dep't can't risk setting a precedent that rules are arbitrary, or the next time a guy gets hurt doing something stupid, his lawyer will point right back to this guy as proof that doing stupid stuff was implicitly allowed.He'll probably just get a light slap on the wrist, maybe having to sit through a day-long refresher course on safety.
