Gone are the days of seeing who can have the dirtiest turnout gear! Too many of our brothers and sisters are getting and dying from cancer! We need to clean up our act and change our mentality!
I have personally lost firefighters with whom I was close with as a result of cancer and it has had a profound effect on me. Our job is dangerous enough! I encourage you to take the time and do a little preventative maintenance and clean your PPE!
Remember to follow the manufacturers cleaning instructions.
