We do alot of business with gov agencies, including fire, PD, county and state facilities. The best fit looking of them all is the Postal Service. I'm astonished sometimes at the number of grossly overweight cops.



Life jackets don't care if you're unconscious or if you're freaking out. They still make you bob to the surface.

Im an overweight fireman and im quite capable of sinking right to the bottom ...and how did you know my boots have zippers

Firefighters dont go near the water w/o vests while working. Its in most dept SOP's

A friend of the family drowned this past year on Lake Michigan while fishing. The guys on board said he was bringing in a fish when he just fell off the back and one of them jumped in, thought they had him, but lost him. It took over a month to find him and when they did the autopsy showed he had a seizure. When he fell in he took a breath and filled up with water, then he sunk like an anchor. My buddy said it happened so fast he didn't have time to react. Maybe the same story here??
