    thanks for the vote of confidence seventies. I figure people were wrap up some way or another down the line. Hope everything works out. I feel pretty good though.

    Question

    I have a question for the guys who've been through the academy or are currently in the academy. What color socks can you wear when doing PT? I know they say have both black and white. Or does it matter either or? Going to be purchasing some special running socks and don't want to purchase 6 pairs of the wrong color. Thanks.

    white socks for PT, black socks for uniform. they cracked down on us wearing black ankle socks with our uniforms, but for PT any length, white socks. "no visible logos" means with your shoes on.

    Thanks for the info 233wacker, I guess I'll be purchasing white socks for PT and black (non ankle) socks for the uniform. Thanks again.

    I was just wondering in Chicago, do firefighters cross over and staff the ambulances or is CFD EMS a separate entity in itself and if so how often do you cross over? Just curious. Thanks.
