If SMD 1 is performed correctly the halo system isn't needed...

agree with Alex.
On the other hand, reading the detailed report of the Linton "incident"
would have me rather be on the deck with sidelines & fire blanket than in the
cab with halo, hope & not much else...

doesnt a correctly done SMD 1 have the same outcome as a halo system on a single cab appliance.

Good luck cramming 6 personnel in a single cab and all be down as close to the floor as possible  :roll:

End of the day good luck to the brigade for having a source of funding and this being the way the brigade chose to spend it.

Just because i dont agree with it doesnt make it wrong  :-)

Doesn't the halo cover the back seats as well?

If we're not in the wrong place, at the wrong time, SMD's 1 and 2 aren't needed.
