    I have to keep myself occupied and semi-entertained. Some one broke into my car downtown today and stole 4 cds out of my car that I don't even listen to anymore... They opened up everything (glovebox, bookbags) and overlooked the face thingy for my radio when it fell out of the glovebox and left it... Thought that would have taken it...

    They never opened it, though. I was jammed and when it's jammed you have go push down hard on top of the lock then pull the release thingy to open it... It jams almost everytime it closes - Something's wrong with the lock, but it's kind of a good thing in a way.

    The cadets in my post wear yellow turtle shells. The firefighters were black 1010's with the company shield, ems wears black 1010's with a blue EMS shield, officers wear white leathers. I am the cadet that has the most time in, and i wear a black 1010 with a red cadet shield.

    Exactly the same SOP for Cadets as for Firefighters:

    Cadet Chief: White
    Cadet Captains: Red
    Cadet Lieutenants: Yellow
    Cadet "Firefighters": Black

    The shield is exactly the same, except the company number, in the middle is Yellow on the Cadet's shield (as opposed to white in the firefighter's shield). And at the bottom of the shield it says "Cadet" not "Firefighter". If the Cadet has a rank there is a line above it and that has Cadet on it, and below that has the Rank.

    Same SOP applies for Cadets as for Firefighters in regards for the type of helmet. Must be NFPA approved, and be a traditional style. Other than that, it doesnt matter, leather, plastic, Cairns, Bullard, no matter.

    The cadets love that system, and I don't blame them. The firefighter's don't mind it, because when they are on calls (lets NOT get into this, please) the yellow "17" is very easy to see and distinguish from a firefighter.

    Chief - White (Seems like a trend :P)

    Captain/Lieutenant - Red

    Firefighter - Black

    Emergency Medical Technician - Blue (We only have one, and he's not a FF so he can't have black.)

    Explorers - Yellow -- Not my favorite, but when we're in them it looks pretty good.
