      I got my turnout gear about after my second meeting. (Which we have meetings every other tuesday, kind of sucks) And then It isn't that new. but it's nice. Well taken care of. And there's some newer gear other guys have. (Explorers) Then there's some awesome gear. (It's not that new) but we have stickers on them. Looks really nice.

          I joined mine last spring when I was 16. We got our "hand-me-down' gear on our second meeting, we had to go to 5 meetings to take it home, and got our pager after going on 3 calls.

            I joined my department when I was 17 in the junior program. I received gear about 3 weeks in, but it was out of service gear. On my department that is what we do for our juniors. The gear is usually in great condition (mainly donated but city departments), but has reached that expiration mark or close to it. Once the member has reached the age of 18 they turn into being a recruit and then they get issued in service gear. They do not get brand new gear until they have completed their certifications to be able to fight interior fires.
