    Or are you referring some some other course called "FFI" which doesn't actually meet the national standard for FFI?
    Damn Deputy, you beat me to it

    The jok... errrrrrr i mean fellow... who started this wayward thread implied that he was taking firefighter I under the age of 18, and he DOES live in NY...

      getting off the ff1 restictions and back on the gear, i was issued a pair of old ranger boots, morning pride helmet, old fire gloves, jamesville bunker pants, and a cairns jacket. like mentioned jrs dont go anywhere near the inside of a structure, i loves my gear, even though 4 months before i joined the county purchased new suits, but there all gone, off to the big ffs. and since we do more mva s and lifeflights than fires, as long as it fits good, and gets me warm in the winter, and not to hot in the summer(yeah right)

        well i have no idea what your talking about because juniors can use scba's in NY for training ....... so it must not be illegal ..... check your story on that one .... and the rules are different everywhere!

          Things may be done differently everywhere, but a state law doesn't change throughout the state.

            Indeed, and both DeputyMarshal and myself are from NY. So the young gentleman should probably listen up...

              Direct from the NYS OFPC web page concerning state fire classes:

              "...Attendance at state sponsored outreach training courses are restricted to personnel within the following categories:

              Career firefighters assigned by their fire department.
              Other career emergency service personnel as assigned by their agencies.
              Active volunteer firefighters who are covered under the Volunteer Firefighters Benefit Law (VFBL).
              Employees of related private and commercial organizations who have adequate worker’s compensation."

              From: NYS OFPC Training

              Unless you are in one of those groups, you are not permitted to attend any state fire course. And at age 16, I predict you fall into none of the above...

                Yeah, I was trying to back you guys up

                In OH you have to be 18 to have any FF cert, but under 18 cannot be certified. However, we can train with SCBA all we want.

                  Just saying i live in florida and i've taken my firefighter 1 and i'm guessing you have to be 15 to use scba in florida, first responder and of course cpr which comes along with that, hazmat awarness, and company officer which is required in my post if you want to be an explorer officer have to wait to be 18 to be state certified on any of them. I've already posted what gear i like but since everyone seems to post what gear they have been issued i'm going to say i have guessing from wear and tear about 5 years old fire-dex p84/kevlar, cairns helmet, self bought carbon fiber hood and self bought fire-dex fire gloves both off of thefirestore.com, and ranger rubber bunker boots. My departments firefighters uses morning pride best on the market in my opinion. Sorry to deviate a little off topic
