November 20, 2018

No-Shave November pays tribute to fire service history by raising funds to support cancer prevention, research and education.

Many years ago, before the modern breathing apparatus, tales are told of firemen growing beards, soaking them in water, biting the beards, and breathing through them when in a smoke-filled environment thinking they would serve as a filter and allow them to breathe a little longer.

Today, fire department policies on facial hair state that in order to get a tight seal with the our current air mask facepieces, a firefighter must be clean shaven, except for a well-trimmed mustache. The mustache, according to regulations must not extend beyond the corners of the mouth or below any portion of the upper lip.

Some of our members have decided to participate in No-Shave November by growing mustaches. After a recent fire call, several of these folks took time out to pose for some photos showing off their mustaches. It is most definitely a sight to see our typically clean shaven members with grown mustaches.
