On the front of www.fireengineering.com there is a video regarding a firefighter that fell through the floor and his helmet saved his life. I recommend that everyone watch the video and the next time you see a student or fellow firefighter w/o his chin strap buckled, do him a favor and give him a small reminder. It could save his life! As a fire instructor, I am strict about if you wear your helmet it gets buckled. I received the number one sign as I gave my friendly reminder to a student. If someone gives you a reminder no need to take offense, just thank him and buckle up!
Look out for each other!
