In early December, Public Safety Instructors Ed Hayes and Gary Woods conducted a full face mask class at the Wareham Fire Rescue Headquarters on Cape Cod. The fire department purchased full face masks with coms and a base communication unit from Scuba Shack.
The new equipment was assembled and added to their exiting scuba gear at the fire house and the in water pool session was held at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. The pool session included dry suit training, buoyancy control, propulsion and use of the full face masks with coms.
