Fire – Heat Damaged Protective Gear

On March 22nd, 2016 Assistant Chief CJ Haberkorn and PIO Melissa Taylor of the Denver Fire Department showed how valuable the fire equipment is after rescuing a man from a burning apartment building at 1515 Grant St. on March 15th, 2016. The velocity and the volume of fire that came out of that building that day, put an excess of probably 1,000 degrees more temperature on the surface of our firefighting gear,” said Denver Fire Department Asst. Chief CJ Haberkorn. Haberkorn said when it was safe to do so, the remaining two firefighters climbed down from the ladder. When you see the fire you think you’re going to run away from it. But when you have a report of a party trapped, it kind of makes the adrenaline and endorphins go a little bit harder. We rely on our gear and we really on our training and the person standing next to me to make sure that we can make safe passage to them and they’re going to walk through fire, said Haberkorn.
