Contagious Ideal posted in Cop Talk about an incident in his/her neighborhood and remarked as to how his/her uniform could be mistaken for a police uniform. (I apologize Contagious Ideal for not knowing your gender) My question is this... do your uniforms ever make you feel like you could be mistaken for police? I know that when in your bunker gear you look like firefighters. What about your regular uniform? Is this an issue for anyone? In my city the police respond to all EMS/Fire calls to assist. This was started years ago when EMS was sent to a call for a sick party down and discovered the reason for his illness was a .22 caliber bullet in the cranium. In my city it is not a real issue but in a major city I can see where you would not want to be misidentified. (since they won't let you carry personal protection weapons) I was just curious about this. Sorry if this is a dead horse topic, I don't get here much. BTW...you guys and gals rock and I appreciate you. edited to add that while my location is San Antonio that is not where I work.
