Body Armor/Bullet proof vest in the Fire service
I want to know, do any of you ever wear a body armor/bullet proof vest or a stab vest when you respond to a call in a high risk neighborhood or a shooting call. Dose your dept provide you with bullet proof vest or do u have to go out and buy it on your own?. Also dose your dept issue a raid vest, when u go out on a call to assist the police dept?. Have any of you ever wore a bullet proof vest on a shooting call and do u think that bullet proof and stab vest should be part of your company or dept's equipment?
