Firefighter standing by 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 (not seen), which supply air to his breathing apparatus (mask on face). This allows him to work in a smoke-filled atmosphere. Reflective strips (silver) improve his visibility in a smoke-filled environment. He also has torches (yellow) secured to his harness. At upper left are rolled-up hoses that can be used to direct water at a fire. Photographed in London, England.
Model release available. Property release not required.
