    Bull wasn't aware of your specially designed SCBA face piece.

    Not too uncomfortable, but it smells like fried calamari.
    That's from Da'Man trying to beam messages into your head from their secret satellites.. obviously you need to tighten the strap on your tinfoil helmet!

    Don't forget the marinara sauce!

    No piercings but 4 tats.
    The last time I was run through a state burn trailer,we were told to remove all watches,rings and jewelry,including eyeglasses(just like before Sea and Anchor detail in the Navy) to avoid even the slightest risk that something would hang up(even packed up the way we were) or absorb heat while inside.
    Yes,you are below the fire level but it still feels like sticking your face into a BBQ grill.
    If your piercings are removable,I'd recommend doing so for the duration of the drill and considering not wearing them on duty if they aren't quickly and easily(read: painless) removable.

    I've never had any problems.....Eliminate the piercings and you shouldnt have any problems either.

Does anyone have any personal stories of body piercings actually causing problems?
    I personally don't have any. But. There might be a problem with SCBA straps.
    I think earrings would get hot long before any under clothing accessories.

    I've never heard anyone who wears a necklace, chain, or medal get burned from it. If you're concerned about the underwire, don't wear one for the burn building.

    Seriously - I haven't heard anything, and never had any issues with an underwire myself.....I WOULD always take off any jewelery I had on (rings, earrings) before gearing up though....it HURTS to have a stud pushed into your head if something hits you in the ear!
    Try having a Industrial Catch in you hood some time, or your Face piece

    If the jewelry gets that hot, you have other things to worry about at that point.
