    If it's just one story it's a stripper pole?

    Is the stripper included in the cost?

    For a small shipping and handling fee.

    I know there are allot of ideas thrown out there but when I graduated the academy my parents and my brother got me two different Streamlight flashlights. To me this has been one of the most useful and life saving tools a Firefighter can ever own. When I went though my second academy for the FDNY that was one of the big points the instructors made to always have a good light.

    Here is what I got and love. I will never buy any other light than Streamlight ever again because of there customer service. I have givin my lights a good beating on the fire ground and any problems they have fixed or replaced the parts no question asked.

    and

    That is my vote!

    This is just a fire academy? Save your money for when he finishes drill school after he gets hired.

    Semantics. I'd just about bet that what you call drill school, the OP's department calls academy...
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Any suggestion? I thought of a St Florian medal, but I don't know if he'd wear it.
    FWIW my wife bought me a St. Florian pendant and chain about 16 years ago after being in the fire service a few years. I'm still wearing it today. You don't have to spend much money to get one, so you could still get that as well as one of the other things mentioned.

    Default FireACademy grad gift ideas!

    Hey all! I posted here before, a few months back, and asked this question and got some great responses. But I tried to find the old thread, and now it's gone. (Now found, and merged with this one.)

    So my husband graduates next Friday from the CDF Fire Academy. He gets his unit day and station assignment next week. I need to find him a great graduation gift!

    His best friend is getting him a St Florian medal. I was going to get him a watch, but have since decided against it. He badly wants a leather helmet, but those are out of my price range. He mentioned something about getting a knife to wear on his scba belt. Any good knife suggestions? Is wearing a knife in full gear practical? Any other suggestions?

    And before it's brought up, steak dinner and BJ night is already planned.

    Haha, I remember your original post, if only for the last part that you mentioned.

    If you look in your profile you can find old posts that you made. Here's your old thread:
    Here (Graduation Gift?)

    Sorry, don't have many ideas other than those that were mentioned before.

    Take care. And congrats to him.

    Gerber is a good brand and not too pricey. Also Ka Bar and SOG are very good knives. You can never go wrong with a good multi tool either.

    Congrats to the hubby on the graduation
