I want to know how many people put their air mask on before you get off the truck. Because at my station we wait until we are at the front door about to enter the fire.

In my department, first due truck (our Engine 3 for fires) the crew all dons SBCA enroute while seated, the ones that aren't juniors. Most don't don facepiece until they reach the door. As for me, atleast during trainig, I try to put it on at the last minute, to avoid it fogging up and becoming uncomfortable. Not that my thoughts count, I'm just a Jr! Hah.

we pack enroute and mask when we need it but if i know we are on the way to a working fire I might put the mask on but I am just the backseater so it really doesn't matter for me to have it on i can see just fine to grab the hose and head to the door the officer on the other hand i dont think should have the mask on till he is about to enter.
