Thats what made it an extra chore Kev, I took it all apart and only washed the outer shells.
The liners I only do "*** needed' and in our "h e" machine here at home with Woolite. It'* a side load machine without an agitator. I'll be keeping the old suit for training. Thats where they seem to get the dirtiest. Last night we went up to the top of the hill above the Firehouse with the Rescue Truck and extracted a full weight dummy from a Lunina they pushed down into the woods. Typical of many accidents we get called on. We tried out all the fancy new telescoping quartz lighting, brought the car partially back up the bank with the wench, stabilized it, cut the battery connects, cleared the glass, cut off the back four pillars and crimped the front two with the Genesis, then the steering wheel secured with rope. Finally extracted the dummy onto the board and brought him up the hill. Really dirty work in the dark. Took our time reviewing it all as we went along since we had the opportunity there we wouldn't in a real accident. Nice to have some time to do it that way so all get something out of it. A little kidding around as well (and as usual) The guys that took the car up to our training ground had put the dummys hand down his pants, and layed some empty beer cans around the driver area. (Wonder how they got empty) One of the girl EMT'* that got in the car started laffing and exclaimed she knew why the " drunken pervert" went over the embankment. Good night for all.
Tommy, thats just the Manufactures Label . We dont put pins or such on our gear. Any taperng with or extra'* puts you in harms way. Even small abrasions and simple things like dirt not cleaned can lead to a suit failure. If you in a building and the suit fails, odds are your not coming out alive. I do have a rear snap on apron coming with my name on it. Everything else about you, rank, Inner Department like EMT, Safety, Rescue, are done on your helmet. At least at our Station.
