Real live fireman here. Let me hit you guys with some knowledge. The air tank on his back is a self contained breathing apparatus manufactured by a company named Scott. It is otherwise known as an air-pack or a Scott-pack. The tanks have come with glow in the dark bands on them for about 20 years ...aaaaaand they don't do a goddamn thing in a fire because you can't see the 			*******		 anyway. Now if this guy invented tools that had strobe lights in them or sirens to tell you where the hell they are, then he would be onto something.

Well he wasn't talking about the "bands around the tanks", He was talking about the tools. Fireaxe etc.

Fire fighter in training here. What about rooms with heavy smoke, or rooms without fire in them but the electric was shut down in the building for obvious reason?


#108 to #70 - dmanspeed (09/20/2013) [-]
the department that i work for hads flashlights that you can put into a strobe and the PASS alarms on the SCBA are great for finding people.

but that strobe or lights of any type won't help for **** when the inversion layer hits the floor and you cant see your hand infront of your face

pic related, its me!

"invents"?

Who invented the wheel barrel? Did they invent the wheel, or the barrel?
User avatar #25 to #15 - dedaluminus (09/20/2013) [-]
There's no such thing as a wheel barrel.

What you're thinking of is a wheelBARROW.
User avatar #26 to #25 - psykobear (09/20/2013) [-]
My bad, let me revise my comment.
Who invented the wheelbarrow? Did they invent the wheel, or the bearwe(barrow)?
User avatar #27 to #26 - dedaluminus (09/20/2013) [-]
To invent anything, you pretty much have to build an entire universe from scratch. Otherwise you're just putting things that already exist together.
User avatar #28 to #27 - psykobear (09/20/2013) [-]
That was my point...
I was using my example as an example of how much sense weasle's comment made
User avatar #46 to #27 - thinegame (09/20/2013) [-]
"To produce or contrive (something previously unknown) by the use of ingenuity or imagination."
Did anyone know of the wheelbarrow before there was one?
No.
Did anyone know of glow-in-the-dark firefighter uniforms before they were used here?
Maybe. But, it doesn't rule it out.

He invented the combonation

Everytime nebraska is mentioned it's about van maur or some kid getting expelled for a retarded reason.

User avatar #2 - lordscooby (09/20/2013) [-]
why would they be used? fires give off plenty of light already, right?
User avatar #20 to #2 - alexusapi (09/20/2013) [-]
i know they are called FIREfighters but i'm pretty sure they do more than that, they save people from ruins and stuff, where it's sometimes completely dark.
User avatar #30 to #2 - tabarzins (09/20/2013) [-]
Well if they're fire fighters hopefully they'll be putting out the fires.

fire fighters also have rescue missions not necessarily related to fires...
#37 to #2 - unncommon (09/20/2013) [-]
It's for scaring off crack heads by making them think they're Jedi's.
#4 to #2 - jaypaul (09/20/2013) [-]
Sure the fires are bright, but what about all that dark gassy **** that comes out of em
User avatar #5 to #4 - lordscooby (09/20/2013) [-]
you mean...smoke?
User avatar #6 to #5 - jaypaul (09/20/2013) [-]
Uh, no. I think you're thinking of airborne solid and liquid particles of matter that have undergone combustion. I mean dark gassy **** .
User avatar #7 to #2 - mrsgooser (09/20/2013) [-]
Its not as much for lighting up the place as it is for identifying other firefighters and looking after one another, especially when the fire is blazing and smoke is thick, the glow in the dark colors will illuminate each fire fighter, making each one easier to find.
#39 to #7 - uruguayan (09/20/2013) [-]
I think he was joking.
User avatar #35 to #7 - blurman (09/20/2013) [-]
or finding there bodies?
#109 to #7 - anon (09/21/2013) [-]
Plus firefighters don't just put out fires they are also called for other major disasters i.e Chemical spills, collapsed building, car crashes etc so it would be helpful for there other duties as firefighters.

Aw, excuse me, since when is coating something in zinc sulfide or strontium aluminate pigments considered an invention ?
Don't get me wrong, I think the idea is neat and might have its future uses, but calling this an invention is going too far. This is what I'd call an improvement. Just that. I believe inventions are a lot more innovative than making an already existing invention glow in the dark.
User avatar #85 - theturtletrolley (09/20/2013) [-]
By invents do you mean he painted his axe with glow in the dark paint...
User avatar #72 - diabolicgnome (09/20/2013) [-]
I want the glow in the dark axe and a pitch black body suit so i can kill people and all they see is a floating axe
User avatar #55 - Rezcall (09/20/2013) [-]
Lol - wont that make children more afraid of firefighters?
User avatar #56 to #55 - viscerys (09/20/2013) [-]
I always thought children thought of firefighters as heroes. I know my friends and I did.
User avatar #57 to #56 - Rezcall (09/20/2013) [-]
Just young children are afraid of firefighters as they looks scary in their gear and tend to hide. Its a big problem so firefighters have days where they invite young children to come see them in gear and play with the trucks =).
User avatar #58 to #57 - viscerys (09/20/2013) [-]
Huh. I always thought it'd be a child thing to do to go towards the guy who looks like he could keep you safe. Must be wrong.
User avatar #59 to #58 - Rezcall (09/20/2013) [-]
Ya me too .. but I guess they can be scary like an axe murdering darth vader in the gear to a young children....
User avatar #60 to #59 - viscerys (09/20/2013) [-]
I spose. My parents taught me that firefighters are good, though
User avatar #61 to #60 - Rezcall (09/20/2013) [-]
Same - and I have taught my children the same. I think the parents need to talk to them before an accident happens so they know ...
User avatar #62 to #61 - viscerys (09/20/2013) [-]
True. I shall remember this if I ever have children of my own.
User avatar #63 to #62 - Rezcall (09/20/2013) [-]
Very wise idea ... we forget that children can be scared easy and have vivid imaginations so need us to guide them about who and what is safe =)
User avatar #64 to #63 - viscerys (09/20/2013) [-]
However, I do hope my future children have vivid imaginations. I've kept my imagination since I was about six, and I've loved almost every minute of it. (The nightmares suck, though.
User avatar #65 to #64 - Rezcall (09/20/2013) [-]
Hahaha ya - imagination is what makes everyday more fun and things more interesting =). I'll always hold on to mine and not grow too old in my mind.
#66 to #65 - viscerys (09/20/2013) [-]
Agreed. You have a good evening, friend.

Imagine how scary it would be to meet that in the dark while trying to escape from fire.
