Shorts under Bunker Pants
Looking for any written information about departments allowing their members to wear shorts or underwear (night-time) under their bunker pants. If your department written information about this please contact me.
I am not looking for the actual SOP so much as I am looking for the documentation of safety that allowed the SOP to be put in to place.
correct me if I am wrong...please
I thought that the big reason for wearing nomex or flamex or whatever was to reduce the chance that the material would burn adding to your already painful burns. Maybe this is semantics, but it was not to protect you from getting burned as much as it was to decrease the complications and debrieding(sp) from having poly melted on your skin.
We now wear mostly 100% cotton. Pants and shirts. We do not have a shorts policy excpet for bike details and the like. And Mike makes a valid point about shorts and short sleeve shirts.
...waiting to be told.......:D
