  • HCC Fire Academy Question

    Hi All - I was wondering if anyone could provide some clarification on a gear question for HCC. I know the academy used to use the MSA low pressure "elephant" SCBA masks, but I believe I heard somewhere they've gone to the MSA Ultra Elite with low pressure adapters. Does anyone know what type/model mask that HCC is now using for their SCBAs during the fire academy?

    Thanks!

      Steve,

      I will need one after I get out of EMT school, but mainly I was just curious as to what HCC was using now. I know Leary is using the high pressure masks but didn't know if HCC was still using the old low pressure BA.

      Thanks!

        I don't think you have to buy the mask, just turnout coat, pants, boots, nomex hood, and gloves. I believe they provide the helmet and scba mask.

          Aside from the gloves and hood, maybe the boots, you dont need any of that sh1t. Theyve got a giant shed filled with loaner gear. Use that.

          Youre going to learn how to put on a mask, stretch a line and raise a ladder. Then when you get a job, youll get issued gear from whoever hires you; all that bunker gear youd have bought for a fire academy? Taking up space and collecting dust.

          Save your money, use your head.
