    Default Probie equipment

    What would be the best type of equipment to purchase that a department does not provide for new hires? I wanted to do some research in this area, thanks!

    The first thing you need to do is find out what the department does not furnish and then go by that.

    I can't imagine that a fire department be it large urban or small urban or rural, would not furnish everything that you would need to do your job.

    You will probably have to invest in some type of underwear, socks, and toilets article for the fire house.

    The only things I ever bought was an old two D cell Ray-O-Vac flashlight and batteries for it. I carried it for over twenty years. I did have to furnish underwear and socks.

    Everything else the department furnished.
