Use the headphones


By Mark van der Feyst

Many fire trucks are equipped with headsets for the crew to use when they are driving. These headsets are designed to cancel out loud noises while allowing each member to communicate with one another and dispatch.

Although they may look unfashionable while driving, they are doing their job of preventing hearing loss. If you do not have access to headsets within your department, wear ear plug while driving — they will also prevent hearing loss and not be so conspicuous.
