    Default Does your department sell shirts?

    No offense to the big cities like FDNY and such, but I am looking for small town FD volunteer of full time shirts I can buy. Just picked one up from Mackinac Island this last weekend, thought that was kind of cool since there are no motor vehicles allowed on the island The FF's ride their bicycles to the fire hall and then take out their trucks (ok, only the Fire Department has motorized vehicles).

    Anyhow would be interested in picking up shirts from different departments if you guys sell them. We don't have any to trade or sell , otherwise I would make offers to trade.

    Post here with an email or something I can use to get in touch with you and a price.

    Thanks,

    Go to our Website www.clintonvfd.org and there is an online store there. Our basic blue t-shirt is $10.00 I think.

    Yeah, to the employee's. They require we wear them but we have to pay for them.

    Dave: I know how you feel. They bought us class Bs, but required we buy the t-shirts if we wanted to wear them. That has since changed, thankfully.

    City supplys us the polos,T-Shirts, BDU/EMS pants,hats,gear bag,ALICE pack for our S&R operations+the gear that goes in it. In addition to our PPE.

    They go half and half on boots.........if you buy them off a list and provide a recipt.

    Jackets and ff job shirts are out of our own pocket.

    And not to hi jack......but we just fought and got the city to pay for half your EMT training upon sucessful completeion.

    Not to bad for small,all vollunteer station.



    PD they supply the shirt, badge,hat and Baton.

    Duty belt,mace,cuffs out of your own pocket.

    Gun you buy your self but it has to be off a "approved" list. You also have to buy a NIJ rated triple rentention holster.

    Must be nice. When we start we get 2 blue uniform shirts, 1 blue long sleve dress shirt, 2 pair duty pants (cheap, not fancy BDUs), 2 department T-shirts, a uniform jacket, a belt, a tie, a sweatshirt, a raincoat and a jumpsuit (coveralls).

    After that, you can ask for more uniform shirts, pants and jumpsuit (after they wear out). We have to pay for additional T-shirts and sweatshirts, boots are all on us as are ball caps. Most of the guys buy jackets, since the ones the departmnt buys are cheap-o's that wont keep you warm much under 65 degrees.

    Its always driven me nuts that our admin is SOOOOO worried about how "professional" we look, but they buy the cheapest crap they can get for us to wear.

    We went to a quartermaster system this year. Annually, we are to get 2 t-shirts, one polo and one pair of duty pants. Every other year we will get a jacket, a ballcap or job shirt. Anything else is at our expense.

    We give t-shirts out to some individuals but not the general public.

    Dave:
    I'm a neighbor 2 counties north of you... it amazes me that we have crap for equipment, the original hurst spreaders I believe, no extinguishers on the engine at our station, but they constantly give us new uniform clothing. I have a closet filled with shirts and pants still wrapped in plastic. I don't get it.

    BDU's are the worst possible pants on the planet. They are cheaply made because uncle sam supplys them.
    They dont fit right, they tear like paper, the button fly is always comeing open, they dont insulate at all, the pockets have buttons on them so you have to take time to seal them and you look like a wanna be johnny swat running around.

    I bought my self Galls EMS and duty pants and I love them. Death to BDU's!!!!!!

    Our admins are so worried about us looking professional too on details and respones. I stopped wearing my BDU' all together......cause they are terrible and went to plain duty pants and I got an earful about how we dont look the same yadda yadda. The next detail........every one but the officer that complained swtiched to plain duty or galls EMS pants!!!!!!

    So now if I am down there for just a meeting or anything else its duty pants. If I know im going to be on the ambie its EMS pants.

    Didn't see the link to the store, maybe I am missing something.

    Anyhow feel free to PM me or leave a message here if you guys want to sell one of your department shirts. I completely understand the security concerns, and it makes sense.

    I know some departments sell different shirts than their actual work shirts.

    Thanks for the responses and that sucks for those of you full time guys that have to buy your own gear, is there a clothing allowance too or do they just make you eat it out of your own paycheck?
