Did You Know? – #0002

Prior to 1985 Detroit Firefighters did not have individual facepieces for their breathing protection?  Prior to that facepieces were shared.


If you’ve never worn a facepiece, the significance of this may be lost.  Would you be happy having to put a mask on when the last guy who wore it had a runny nose, or worse yet got sick in it while fighting a fire the night before.  No amount of cleaning would give you piece of mind.
