10/08/13 140 W, 3 I - + 1 - 4 Pepper Spray Day at Police Academy

These Howard County, MD, fire units were photographed on Friday at the county public safety center, where a police academy was underway. The day's activities included pepper spray training. Thus the presence of the Howard County Fire/Rescue mobile contamination unit. Decon 13 is a 2005 Pierce Enforcer/ACSI. Yours Truly was paying a photo visit, as the facility was serving as emergency lodging for staff and workers of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial weekend. See more photos at www.legeros.com/nfff. Meanwhile, maybe some of our law officer readers will share their experiences on the subject of being "maced" as a part of training. Some of us, um, haven't had the privledge.
