Here's an interesting incident photo from Japan, found via Google images. The photographer is Phillippe, who appears to be a French person who was vacationing. Notice a variety of differences between Asian and American firefighters. Colored hose wrappers. Big hose couplings. Long, playpipe-style nozzles. Hand cart, for hose 'n' nozzles. Box-frame extension (?) ladder. Silver fire helmets. And chevrons on the traffic cone! See the original image (and click the magnifying glass icon to see full-size).

Phillipe photo

and in Kyoto, the turnout is all silver and highly reflective, and looks more like samurai style armor, especially the helmet with neck and ear flaps – sorry, didn’t have my camera with me that time

What? Silver is a firefighter in Kyoto too?

Yeah, on my 4 days off I fly over there and work 2 days, then come back.
