I usually post in CopTalk but just wanted to say what's up to the Firefighters and EMT's. I have a question for you guys. I'm mostly interested in full time paid FD's, but other input is good too. I'm doing a little study to compare PD to FD and EMT. Do you guys get most of your gear supplied by the Department, or do you have to provide it yourself? For FD I'm talking about your turnout gear, boots, SCBA, Halligan tool, and everything else. What, if anything do you have to personally buy to use on the job? I know that Volunteer FD's will have a long list but I'm curious about paid FD's also. Thanks everyone, Be safe out there. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
