The Iron Man of Firefighting

Imagine climbing upwards of a grueling 50 flights of stairs while wearing 30 pounds of gear. That’s the reality for many high-rise firefighters. A little help would be nice, right?! That’s where the AFA Powered Exoskeleton comes in. Strapped over the firefighter’s gear, the device provides supplemental muscle to aid performance in walking, running and carrying up to 200 lbs.. Enough to carry equipment or even injured victims in time-crucial emergency situations.

    This has got to be one of the most idiotic design for firefighting. Its apparent that the person who came up with this has zero field experience, let alone consult with actual firefighters (professional or volunteers). Its easy to come up with a long list of whats wrong with this suit

  • Johnny Depp is another example of a celebrity who loves stylish sunglasses.
    Another thing to think about are the flowers the bridesmaids will
    wear. It now encompasses everything from women’s clothing to eyewear to underwear to
    tailored suits.

  • The HCG hormone stimulates the hypothalamus gland, which regulates
    your metabolism. Each year multiple ideas of what will work in helping us lose weight fast,
    is tossed around the radio dial, internet, and television about
    as often as Nicolas Cage makes movies. So, the question is, what has changed and how do we
    address the problem.
