Your Own Personal Turnout Gear?
I have a few questions related to this topic.
I'm curious to find out how many of you have bought your own personal set of turnout gear?
Did you have to abide by your fire departments standards such as color of gear and trim style?
What was the main reason for purchasing your own set of turnout gear? Will your fire department reimburse you for expenses?
What is the size of your fire department and what is your annual budget? How much of that is set aside for the purchase turnout gear?
