Firefighters need to be able to rely on their support equipment to keep themselves and others safe. Firefighters can sustain serious injuries if these special pieces of equipment fail. Without this equipment, it would be difficult for firefighters to immediately react to help an individual in need or to enter into a burning building with ample protection.

Support Equipment Problems
Firefighters need all the tools at their disposal to most effectively tackle the wide range of problems they may face. As with any other dangerous profession, this equipment can help save lives while offering protection for firefighters. The following problems with pieces of equipment can prove to be devastating:
- Defective Fire Blankets
- Defective Oxygen Masks
Many times, a firefighter’s abilities are limited by the kind of extreme conditions they work in. However, these pieces of equipment, when functioning properly, can help them smother fires faster and even to walk through billows of otherwise hazardous smoke.
