Tap the Box - This month we are discussing the importance of wearing all of our PPE and SCBA during today's toxic fires.  We will discuss the PPE limitations and how can we be safer. Special guest Captain Steve McKenna will discuss his personal experience with being diagnosed with Cancer in 2009 and the battle to beat the disease. This is not a common or comfortable discussion that firefighters engage in... but host Billy Greenwood of Tap the Box brings it to the firefighters for the better of all. Please take a listen and learn.
