IT’S TOO HOT FOR THOSE SUITS!

PROTECTING THE COMMUNITY IN EXTREME CONDITIONS!


I felt really bad for some Houston firefighters Friday when I stopped and snapped some photos on the 610 loop. They were putting out a fire. A flatbed tow truck caught on fire and the firemen were there to suppress it. I noticed the heavy suits some of them were wearing. They appeared to be at least 20 pounds. But the men on the scene managed to function in the heavy hot suits with temperatures near 90 degrees. My hat is off to these guys who work in such extreme conditions to keep the community safe!
