    our combo dept never wears the flying cross shirts, during the spring/fall months we switch up between high quality T-shirts and polo style golf shirts. during the summer it's T-shirts only, during the late fall/winter/early spring months we have the option of golf shirts or sweatshirts, we're also looking at job shirts this year...

    but how hot it gets here in raleigh the T-shirt is the only way to go. and it's what most local depts wear during the summer, if they're not wearing polo shirts

          Our department is looking into polo shirts ( or golf shirts as some call them), they look kind of dressy but are still comfortable.

            Truckman,
            I know exactly what you are talking about. Our department recently had a "changing of the gaurds". In other words we got a new Chief. Our new boss had us revamp the current SOPs, committiee style. The old rules stated that the worker bees had to have on their dress blues all the time. I am a transplant from another department, so I've experienced different and outside ideas. I introduced the idea that we aren't desk type workers, we're blue collar workers. We get down and dirty doing a variety of either station stuff or sweat our you know what off on scene in the summer months. As long as we one, all look the same, and two, pay attention to our uniforms appearance and upkeep, we'll still look sharp. I also stated that the average citizen probably doesn't care if we have a big crome badge on or a good quaility tee (when everyone else in the summer months is wearing just that). We have a very understanding Chief here. He listened to our opinions and wrote his new SOP. It states that t-shirts are acceptable in the summer months to run calls in. This decision was based on our comfort issues in the hot humid Mid-West summers.

            So in closing if you have an understanding Chief talk to him or her and voice the feelings of the Firefighters on shift. Maybe the brass will listen, ours did.
