RDS Mod A - What to Wear?


Recommended Posts

I am just about to start my mod A, for HFRS. The course details are pretty vague as they haven’t loaded onto moodle, I have been told to turn up in civies on the first day but this seem odd as I have full uniform?

I had to turn up in civvies for every single day of my wholetime training. The argument being, you're not a trained FF yet and if you're seen in public in that uniform (car crash on the way home etc) the public will see a firefighter and expect as much.

Doesn't seem odd to me, you're not a firefighter yet, wearing the uniform comes with a few responsibilities, you may be asked to help with something en-route you wouldn't have the first clue to resolve. Wear the uniform when your confident of your abilities, not before.

In Hants, they will have been doing online learning and attending drills in uniform (I'm not stating that it makes your qualified for any duties). You then attend your MOD A and it was turn up in uniform. That's the only reason I mention it's odd as they've been doing it that way for some time.
