I got my turnout gear today!
It's all shiny and new. I have a blue helmet. That's the designator for EMS only. I'm sure I'll look funny and get lots of snide remarks from the firefighters at the Firehouse. I had to get an older style of jacket since it's the only one they had in a long size. I'm 6'4" so, in order to get a proper length, I have to go with tall sizes. All in all, I'm pleased to be geared up and ready to run.
I also got my Personal Accountability Tag. It's a little ID with my picture on it and a clip. I feel like I've been inducted into a club!
It's about time!
