  • Personal Gear Questions

    Hi, I am looking at some personal equipment to last a long time.
    I was eyeing those kangaroo gloves from protech-8, and a colored nomex.
    would the gloves be worth it at 88?
    would the nomex dye be a hazard?

        Wear the PPE your department issues.

        The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

              +1. Here if injured, our safety office confiscates PPE to determine if its use/nonuse/misuse contributed to the injury. If found to be wearing PPE other than what was issued, member risks being reported (disciplinary charges).

                  What if I am at a department that takes low bid on everything? There should be no reason why an individual can't purchase and use thier own peice of gear as long as it meets or exceeds the department's standards. I have never heard of anyone not winning a benefit claim because thier gear was better than what the department gave them.

                  And I am sure someone will try the whole "non-uniformity" thing. My gloves being different than the guy next to me won't confuse anyone. If it does you may want to seek another place of employment.

                    Did Bossier Booby Callahan give you permission to wear personal gear? He might not allow you to do that. Better check with him first.

                      May be some kin to the other one and another yardfireman.


                      As Mrpita said, you wear whats the department issues. If you get hurt in it, you are covered. If you have something else on that isn't issued and get hurt, you are up shyt creek.

                          -Do you do mutual aid with his company? Do you cringe if dispatched to their area??

                          -Do you receive mutual aid from them? Do you cringe if you know they are coming in????

                          -You are assigned to Ladder 1. Do you receive extensive training in ground ladder use, whether you have buildings over two stories in height in your area or not????

                          -Does anyone down there, other than Bossier Booby, take him seriously? Because many of us on here think that not only is he an azzwipe, but he is an insult to our profession and a coward. Inquiring minds want to know.
