Top Issues Facing Responders:
Turnout gear issues are near and dear to my heart. There is still too little education out there for responders on their PPE. There are too many so called "experts" out there filling people's heads with what they want to fill them with, some information isn't wrong, it's just misleading. The truth is out there, and is known, but most experts haven't been in the service, the best thing they know is that they call for a big red truck and it puts out fire.
