    Red face Department's Turnout Gear color?

    What is your department's turnout gear color. I personally think the orange strip is the best.

    Thumbs up

    In this neck of the woods, 90% of departments wear either pbi gold color with lime/silver trim or black with lime trim, there are a few odd ducks with yellow gear, they look kind of funny, maybe they should go out west.
    Orange trim? ugh! red gear? ugh!
    -Red is what some ambulance companies use around here and our navy base used to have red gear... ugh!

    Oh well, it all protects the same, after all isn't that what it's for?

    yellow coat and black pants with orange reflectors, salad bowl helmets with the leather fronts, it is a unigue combination, pretty sweet looking, I think it would look alot better if they had the FDNY striping.

    PBI tan with FDNY lime/yellow triple trim...I prefer black.

    By the way I believe OSHA/NFPA is more concerned with the reflective qualities, not the color of the fabric.

    My fire department in Delta Junction, Alaska wears yellow bunkers with orange and white reflective trim. I don't know why people think yellow bunkers look silly ... they do the job and they are worth gold to a small rural fire department. The chief officers at Delta fire dept. wear white bunkers with orange trim. Probies and firefighters wear yellow helmets, Lieutenants wear blue, Captains wear red and Chiefs wear white.
    My fire department in Fairbanks, AK wears PBI gold with yellow and white trim and some folks have black bunkers with incredibly huge orange reflective strips. You can't miss them in the dark!! The chief officers wear the PBI gold with white helmets. Probies wear yellow helmets, firefighters wear the coveted black helmets, and both Lieutenants and Captains wear red.
    I'm still a probie in Fairbanks so I have my nice shiny bright yellow probie helmet. I'm an entry firefighter in Delta but I'm still in a yellow helmet hahaha
    One of these days I'll be wearing white!!!!
    God bless and be safe everyone
