When I joined up in 1981 Washington state had just implemented a law banning facial hair based on interfering with the mask seal. A number of the, then (at least to me), old-timers swore that they never smelled smoke with a mask on until after they shaved off their beards. This was back before fit testing and it was one size fits all, even if it didn't.
