    Default choice or no choice

    Is it possible on any departments these days to choose between the 3/4 boots and long coat?


    just wondering i thought NYFD gave you the choice of which to wear.

    Come on FWD...

    Dude this is a new guy, obviously a kid, can we cut him just a wee bit of slack for his unforgivable gaff of calling the FDNY the NYFD?

    We gotta stop beating up new guys here.

    I'm not beating up on anyone! I never heard of NYFD!! He could be speaking of North York Fire Department, or North Yarmouth Fire Department......Besides, where I come from the new guys get beat up the hardest!
