Fire Suit Testing/Fire Breathing

Toronto - April, 2010

Testing my volcano heat suit by breathing fire on it.

This weekend I did a test of the heat suit that I use whenever I descend into an active volcano or get up close to hot lava. How do you test such a thing in Canada? Well, I recruited friend and fellow storm chaser Mark Robinson and we took turns alternating between wearing the suit and breathing fireballs at each other.
 
I always knew that learning how to breathe fire would come in handy for something.
 
The result? Everything worked exactly as planned. The suit worked and nobody got burned and we ended up with some rather dramatic video of the test. My favorite quote from the video *To Mark* "Uh, your face is on fire!!"
