      I don't know. Maybe I'm on my own on this one. I thought it was obvious.

        He's probably referring to the vests over the SCBA, something that is clearly exempted by the CFR, and honestly, seems like it would get in the way to me (and I'm very much a vest proponent).

          No, I'm with you. Some people just can't see anything but absolutes.

            I'm guessing their being extra safe since there doesn't appear to be any fire showing.

              I wondered too. It's one of those things that make you go, "Hmmmm".

                  Maybe I don't understand the issue, but again I'm not at that scene and do not have the right to armchair quarterback.


                  I can't think of a situation where my crew is wearing SCBA and traffic would be driving by in the adjacent lane. So label me puzzled by this one.

                  If the IC says put on a vest, then you put on a vest.

                    Please explain the issue. I will reserve comment until then.

                      Maybe they have one of those Chiefs that only deals in absolutes, such as:

                      "Vests will be worn at every incident on a street"

                      and

                      "SCBA will be worn at every incident that involves Hazmat"

                      And if both situations apply, then you have to look like an idiot.

                        I don't know Marcus... they seem too busy to worry about looking like idiots.

                        Other than the fact that the vest are twisted and not worn properly, they do get points for commitment.

                        I do appreciate your ability to find the humor in it. You never know, it may become the next fashion craze.

                          Based on the way the vests are worn I could also see the following scenario being possible:

                          After being on scene for a short while, doing what they are doing, a chief showed up. At this point maybe they realized "Crap, we are not wearing our vest, get it on, get it on, get it on!!!!!!!" resulting in the demonstrated doning technique.

                          I know something like that has never happened to me
