Thread: Department's Turnout Gear color?
05-13-2001, 02:09 PM #26Captain GonzoFirehouse.com Guest
Firefighter and line officer's turnouts are black P84 with the FDNY lime/silver/lime trim. Firefighters have black helmets with black shields, Lieutenants and Captains have black helmets with white shields.
The Deputies and the Chief wear white Nomex turnout gear with the FDNY trim amd white helmets with gold shields.

Our old gear was tan with yellow trimming but we've now changed to blue with lime trimming.

Wow! The amount of black gear that departments are wearing is allot more than I ever thought. I am a 10-year ff and I also run my own company and sell gear. I look back on my sales and department visits since Jan 01 and I have only seen about 20 sets still in service. I have not sold nor have I been asked for a quote for black gear of any kind. Let me say I do not have anything against black turnouts I am just surprised the amount of black bunkers out their. I am from northern Indiana and 5 years ago yellow Nomex with 3" orange striping was the gear of choice. I am seeing allot of departments upgrading from Nomex to Basofil or PBI tan color with 3M Triple trim (lime/silver/lime) It just shows me how different we all are but jet we all still get the same job done.
Stay Safe and God Bless.

Brian that is an interesting point, it seems to me that gear color, and all ppe color/style/type is largly regional. Around here there is alot of black gear. And the PBI is making its way around, but mostly in paid departments now. And there is still some of that ugly yellow kicking aroundthe area too.

Some of have purchased leather helmets on our own. Most of the men have Cairns, a few of us have Conways. I really like my Conway, but I am ordering a Cairns because it is SWEEEEEET! Fits nice on the head as well!
