Being a fireman is way too fun.

I’m taking Firefighter I, which is basics of firefighting.  This class is a freaking blast.  For starters, we have been doing donning and doffing.  This is putting on and taking off gear.  By putting on gear, we mean: 1) pants, 2) boots, 3) jacket, 4) nomex hood, 5) air mask, 6) air pack, 7) gloves, 8) helmet.  This adds up to 60ish pounds of gear.  This has to be done in less than 90 seconds.

After donning and doffing for an hour, we took a water break.  After a water break, we did some obstacles.  Putting on 60 lbs of gear then crawling through an 18″ wide tube is certainly an experience.
