I have always believed that history and tradition within a fire service is essential to providing effective emergency operations "they've done it this way for years and it seems to be working".

But sometimes emergency services should take a closer look, was it done as best as we can do or is there a better, smarter way?

As technology etches it way into fire fighting and emergency response, some traditions are best left in the fire fighting museum- the introduction of Breathing Apparatus for example- what was once considered something a 'sissy' would wear is now considered essential personal protective equipment.
