    Club? Are you talking about a volunteer fire dept. or company?

        Why don't you use what you have now, providing you are a fireman somewhere. You don't need other gear.

        If the Club wanted you to have gear then that club should furnish the gear.

        The SPAMMFAA Club I belong to doesn't mind if I am wearing the departments gear, if I need to have gear on. We aren't doing any firefighting.

          Oh Brother...

          Why don't you approach your local fire department. Perhaps they have some old worn out gear they will give away.

          I must say... it takes some nerve to come here for the purpose of seeking donations for your own personal use.

          I wish you luck.

              In his defense, he never said "donation" outright.

              Perhaps he is looking to buy.

              Anyways, with people needing turnouts for actual firefighting, I can't get too
              excited about his club.....

                    What size coat? What style helmet? What size boots? I can talk to the Chief and go through our old spare stuff to see if I can accomodate you.

                          Anyone check him out? Club info? He wouldn't be the first to impersonate. I used to own a equipment company and had a guy come by and was just on the creepy side about lights. I called the local police and had them look into him. The next week he was arrested in the next county north of my shop running lights when he came up on the sheriff. Needless to say he spent a few weeks in jail!

                          Matt care to send out some info on your org.?

                            Well our department either destroys all old gear or we give it to the State Department of Fire Programs, www.vafire.com for use in burn classes for those who don't have much.
