    May be a little late to the party, but when I was at quartermaster yesterday they strongly sudjested I purchase a black duffle bag from then and that I bring it to the orientation on Monday, we will be getting a lot of stuff. After tax it came out to just under 33 dollars. Well worth it in my opinion, reason being it must be black with no markings on it, figured I can't go wrong if I purchase the one they tell me to.

    I don't think so because in my class there were 2 people that were asthmatic. One was so asthmatic that that person had to do pt inside while we did it outside in the cold. And the other one did pt in the cold but had it's pump at all times and used it. The one that did pt inside had a doctor's note.

    This is a question for those who graduated and on the job. With the turnout gear and bullet proof vest you get , when are you supposed to wear what? Does it depend on calls? I have seen video when FDNY EMTs are wearing the turnout gear, then others are wearing the vest over uniform and others just uniform. Just curious. Hopefully one day I will be wearing them myself.

    I have asthma so I can personally tell you it’s not an automatic DQ, you have to get a doctors note stating it is controlled. Only reason I can see it DQing you is if it’ll interfere with your duties, don’t need a scene turning into 2 patients bc you have an asthma attack walking up two flights.

    When in the academy they will teach you with calls you should be responding to in bunker gear (fire, mva, etc), and sometimes people wear it in the winter. The vest is basically just at the preference of the member, most usually just keep it with their PPE and throw it on when responding to a dangerous call.

    At the end of the day it’s your equipment and there for your safety so you can wear it whenever you want.
