    Ours have t-shirts for after 5pm and the button up blue shirts for during the day. They buy their own cargo/station pants and boots

    we wear the same uniforms as the FFs. they are looking at replacing the gray polo, then there is the white dress shirt w/ badge and WVFD collar pins...then we have tshirts, swaetshirts, and hoodies...after you are off probation you have to wear one of those when at a department function

    We have a lighter blue shirts and sweatshirts than the career firefighters. But jacket wise we get hammy downs. Pants are just double kneed carharts.

    T-shirts, job shirts, hat, boots and EMT pants just like the firefighters all provided. No dress uniform or anything like that that I know of. I think that is all. If you didn't know better the only way to tell the difference would be the helmet color and shields, which I am not sure if they are all in yet or not. Good group of kids though, looking to learn and work. I am happy they are around and help out where needed ask questions and earn their uniforms and gear.

    Same exact uniform- work and formal - as the career and volunteer members.

    Same PPE as well.

    Our explorers wear all black boots, black or navy blue duty pants, a black belt, and a red t-shirt. Our t-shirs are red so that on calls we can easily be distinguished as explorers and not mistaken for firefighters. Most explorer/cadet posts in our area use the red shirts for their Jrs.

    Our uniform is identical to that, except that over our red shirts we wear blue collared shirts, identical to the paid/volunteer guys, but we have an Explorer's patch where a badge would be.
