Kevlar vests for fire medics?
Ok a call I went on a few days ago has really gotten me thinking. Came in as a broken ankle but once we got there the victim went insane and tried to attack us. As he was trying to go in his bedroom he was saying he was going to shoot us so we took him down and restrained him till police got there. Once cops got there they found a loaded shotgun behind his door. The guy apparently had a long history of mental illness. After that I'm thinking about buying a kevlar vest. Does any firefighter or medic out there wear one? What are your opnions on this? I mean I'm assuming when I go to a fire I won't even notice I'm wearing it cause of my bunker gear. I'm not decided yet I just really want everyone's opinion
