you're missing Environmental Suit skill, while I'm not quite sure they would hall have HasMat suit training, however they do have training in using DX skill in a heavy fireproof suits and life support systems

I'm not really sure this qualifies... Sure, there's potentially an oxygen tank with a mask involved, but we're talking about a slightly cumbersome suit of armor that mostly just provides DR against Heat/Fire except on the head, not a fully-sealed suit that operates as a single unit, here.

High Tech lists a couple suits in the Environment Suits section (pg 75). The Fireproof Suit is a simple jumpsuit used by race-car drivers, pilots and forest firefighters, and provides short-term protection. The Turnout Suit is a more complete protective set used exclusively by firefighters. Presumably both these suits require the Environment Suit skill, and limit DX skills while worn.

I do have a minor pet peeve about the way Environ / Powered Suits limit skill. I'd prefer if they just gave a flat DX penalty, which could perhaps be mitigated by high skill. There just doesn't seem enough difference between a fireproof jumpsuit and a soldier's kevlar vest to justified such a huge limitation for one and not the other.

Well, it's easy enough to swap out HazMat for Environment Suit if you like. Forest Firefighters should probably have a more expensive lens that includes stuff like Parachuting, at least in cinematic campaigns...

Optionally Driving: rear section of the truck which the typical heavy wheeled vehicle doesn't have controls for.

A paramedic will have the above and Physician.

I'd actually dispute Axe/Mace being on the Firefighter template. That skill represents using an Axe in combat. For the firefighter's typical usage of the tool, Forced Entry is sufficient. Of course, cinematic firefights would be fully versed with such weapons.

These are the suits I tried in (different helmets though), and the description on HT 75 is spot on - though the note concealable as/under clothing needs to remove the "under" part - I can't imagine putting anything over one. Anyone that doesn't have training in one runs a serious risk of breaking on ankle when running up stairs in those stiff boots.
