Asking a huge favor regarding bunker pants
Wasn't sure where to post this so I placed this here but feel free to move it.
I have a new member on my department that states she is serious about getting into firefighting. My problem is our department has a very limited budget for new equipment including PPE and we can't afford to purchase her new gear and have her leave because she discovers it is actually not something she wants to do.
So what I am hoping for is a cheap or donated pair of bunker pants for her to use for training and then once we find out she is serious we will purchase her new gear. We have a jacket that fits her but not pants. The smallest pants we have are waist 28 and inseam 28 or 30 I forget which.
I am looking for anything close to the following size: waist 27 and inseam 22.
I realize the inseam is essentially asking for a miracle.
Or if someone has a solution on how to trim away at least 6 inches I am all ears. Anybody know if someone will actually touch bunker pants to be hemmed?
