    I didn't flip anything around. You said it. And you're still a fool if you think it is that inconvenient. Maybe you don't give a crap about yourself, but I'm sure others do. I'm sure they'll feel better knowing you were comfortable and proudly protesting the vest laws when you get run over by a car and die.

    The WT should remember 111truck then, aka former FH editor and FDNY retired - Tom Brennan.

    I'd heard nothing but good things about him and have made sure to read every one of his posts from his old account: 111truck.

    RIP

    I would wear a traffic vest because I think I look pretty damn cool in them. In fact, I'm wearing one right now, sitting in my living room.

    That was the original argument of emt161. I was told benefits will be denied to me if I was killed on a highway without a vest.

    Show me an incident where that has happened or something similarly has happened.

    I'm not being a jackass. All I am saying is that nothing with your benefits would change regardless if you had a vest on or not.

    I might change my outlook if I saw a previous case where it has. Until then, that is my stance on the subject.

    When I first started out in the fire service, safety traffic vests didn't exist on the engine. It has only been recently that they are a required piece of equipment. They are mainly use on MVA's but if a driver doesn't see a big red fire engine with lights flashing, I highly doubt they will see me or my fellow fire fighters with a reflective vest. But we wear them none the less and hope that those who are out on the road, don't think we are targets of opportunity.
