    couldn't agree more, and no one on a scene has ever told me i'm not dressed pretty enough to handle their emergency

    that being said our policy is:

    black shoes or boots (nothing specifically about black socks)

    blue uniform pants, no cargo/bdu/ems/5.11 style pants allowed

    blue department tshirt

    blue button down, with department patch on one side, paramedic or EMT patch on the other, sewn on name strip, badge and bugles for captains down, BC's and above have shiny metal nameplate/badge/bugles so everyone is reminded of how important they are

    job shirt (the sweatshirt collar type, not the denim type) with sewn on namestrip on the chest, department patch and medic or EMT patch on the sleeves... and yes your uniform shirt is required under it at all times

    uniform jacket (flourescent yellow)

    department baseball hat

    department watch cap (although they're pretty lenient on this one, maybe because they haven't bought any in 5+ years, as long as its plain black or navy or at least nothing bigger then an Under Armor label no one says anything)

    that's 24/7

    UNLESS
    you have on your turnout gear, the button down shirt isn't required

    UNLESS
    you're on the ambulance, then it still is

    UNLESS
    your're working out or sleeping, then bunker pants and a tshirt are ok

    UNLESS
    you're on the ambulance and working out or sleeping then you have to change out of your workout or sleep attire into your uniform pants and shirt

    our chief and one BC are so worried about uniforms (insecure about something) that they didn't want to swith the little emblem on the front of our tshirts to match our new department patch or even change the size of the letters on the back of our tshirt because then we'd have "people running around with all different kinds of tshirts." i didn't know 2 varieties were "all different kinds." and yes thats the tshirt that we have to wear another shirt over top of 90% of the time.

    now they're talking layoffs being possible, did i mention they pay $60+ for each uniform shirt by the time they ad the patches/badges/names/bugles

    We don't require specific clothes yet. BUT we have been working on getting shirts and insignia items for the members. We used to have a proper dress uniform but they haven't purchased any of them in the 16 years I've been in.

    We did have a young lady in the department a few years ago who showed up for a call in her turnout gear with a bikini under it! She had been getting some sun when the tones went for a structure fire. She tossed on her gear and showed up. Didn't find out what she had under it until she decided to jump into the porta-pond because it was a hot day...
