Firefighter standing by a storage cabinet of a fire engine. He is wearing protective clothing and gloves to protect him from the heat of a fire. The helmet is to protect his head from falling debris. He is carrying compressed air in tanks on his back (padded against the heat), which supply air to his breathing apparatus (mask on face). This allows him to work in a smoke-filled atmosphere. The reflective strips (silver) improve his visibility in a smoke-filled environment. He is also carrying torches (yellow) on his harness. Photographed in London, England.
