    with the cold weather canada has,

    do the dept's issue good gear to protect you from the elements ?


    or do you always wind up buying....socks, gloves, boots, for a few bucks
    more because theywere worth it

    We get pretty good cold weather gear, gloves, toque however we do have to get our own long underwear - I dont recommend the kevlar as they chaff badly. The only other problem is the snow shoes issued - I prefer the aluminium frame, but for some reason they keep giving us these cheap wooden ones!
    Oh well - best to stay indoors!

      You get the wooden ones too?

      I've been eyeing up some aluminum ones with the step in bindings. I believe that the Tundra Fire Protection Association has finally approved their use for the fire service.

          We rehab a lot more in the winter and I have put hand and foot warmers on our trucks for people to put in their boots/gloves. Thankfully we don't actually action alot of fires in the winter, mostly MVC's and straight first response calls that happen inside nice, warm houses.

            I don't know about the rest of you, but when your doing an interrior attack and the walls of the igloo start melting, you get wet and cold.

            And nothing beats warming your hands over a can of sterno when the caribo lined gloves get wet.

            Have to watch the truck exhaust too, melts one heck of a hole in the ice and rig will slide right in. Thank god for the dog sled recovery teams.
