    Well yet another North Carolinian on the boards, welcome from Forsyth County. Try Ebay, can get some halfway decent gear from there. Any size gear, helmets, gloves, hoods, and boots I would buy new, just because those are thing I wouldn't really want to wear after someone.

    Well I can't help you then, we barely have gear to fit our people, but christmas is close upon us and you can always ask for gear for yourself. Here is a idea, have your advisor call up the closest mall, and see if you can do like a fill the boot type thing. We are working on doing that, carwashes work well, made 300 dollars in one day. Also have an advisor call to the other depts. and see if the have any old gear that they have replaced or are going to get rid of.

    Hey,

    If I was you, I would write a grant proposal to the city or state. In the request, I would explain the service your department provides and the necessary need for personal protective equipment. You may also try fundraisers to try and generate the funds for gear.

    Good luck to you.
