Don’t Try This At Home!

Yesterday, one of our members, Jeff Irwin, participated in a 5km run to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy. But, it wasn’t quite the normal run…

Jeff ran in full turnout gear including SCBA. This meant that on his back he had about 50 lbs. If you’ve ever worn firefighting gear you’ll know that it’s heavy, really restricts your movement, and doesn’t let you dissipate heat easily.

Well done Jeff!
