HFD New Look for Summer

Hillsboro Firefighters have a new look this summer.  They are ditching the dark blue or black Nomex shirts with dark T-shirts beneath for a single layer polo shirt.  The change is a result of firefighters' requests for alternate apparell that would be cooler yet maintain a professional image.  After researching what departments in other areas of the country have for summer uniforms, our folks arrived at the light-colored collared shirt. 

Below is Firefighter Kabe Grant pausing while performing Monday morning apparatus checks on Brush-1.  Let us know what you think about the new shirts.

That's a great look. Wish HFD had these available a few years ago.
