Jason replied to John Rulli Jr.'s discussion What colors are your department helmets?
"Chiefs-white(with white coats) Cap's- red Lt's - yellow all others are black. We are one of the few depts in the area that wear black turnout gear. I prefer that over any other."

For a small vol dept some of our biggest issues include, lack of man power during day time calls, lack of desire to train, new technology in cars, and a joke when it comes to selecting who is in charge of trucks.
