Dustdevil Posted June 4, 2008 Share Posted June 4, 2008 It's a leather fetish I guess, because I spent my fire career in the plastic helmet era, and never witnessed any such weirdness. Just another one of those fire service idiocies that the old birds tell the rookies they are supposed to feel and do, so they just accept it and pass it on mindlessly because it's "tradition". Tradition does more to kill firefighters than any other factor. Unfortunately, the more that die, the more they feel like heroes, and the more they commit to mindless tradition. And the cycle continues. Too bad there aren't enough people in the fire service who are intelligent enough to figure it out. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
