Their gloves did not work but they sure liked the ove gloves. the now carry a box of them on each truck. The firemen did no know the basics of operating a coal stove or simply opening the draft. Sue could not get it through their mind to learn something new.
Sounds like you got idiots for firemen. IMO
But going 50 feet is way to far to be carrying hot ash...so hot its burning your fingers w/protective gloves. I rarely move hot hot hot ash...I let it cool down first.
But if you need to, I like the solution noted before .. make a container to hold the ash pan and carry that, which you can design to not require gloves to move.
If you are going 50 ft, it would likely take about 2-5 minutes ... even w/welding gloves I would be concerned ... the dwell time of contact exposure is very long.
