    Some of the biggest "boobs" in the fire service wear the filthiest, crappiest falling apart PPE... some of them have never been in a real fire, but "season" their stuff over a burn barrel to "get the look"....

    Moreover, the striping is NOT the same. The whole point to the vest is the arrangement of the stripes enforces the impression of a human form when nothing else is visible EXCEPT the striping. Speaking from personal experience passing through an unlit area, seeing the striping from a Class II vest, and instantly recognizing that there was a person there before the fact that it was a vest even registered.

    I agree though that if they're worried enough about fire to be on air, the vests should be on the truck.
    When's the last time you removed your entire uniform, including pants, shirt, and shoes after a shift before returning home? Do you launder your ems uniform in your home washing machine? If you wear your uniform home, or launder it in your home washer, you have no right to throw stones or make assumptions about others.

    I wash my gear, from my career FD, my volunteer FD, and from the tech college I teach for whenever it is dirty. Sometimes that might mean every month for some of it, and sometimes it may mean not for 6 months or more. If I don't catch a fire or I am not teaching live fire training why do i need to wash my gear?

    I was so fanatical about not spreading to my family whatever I ran into on a call that I NEVER wear my uniform home from the career FD and if i catch a fire on my volly FD my clothes goes right into the washer and I shower before I let my family touch me. Are YOU that careful?

    This.

    If you are not closing off the road, vehicle placement is paramount. Well, it paramount no matter what.

    You did mention it. Sorry I got lazy with the cut and pasting. Excellent points, though.
