    Side zip turnout pants?

    I have no idea how I noticed this but the FF from R-3 has side zip up bunkers pants similar to the ones worn by FDNY EMS members. Never seen this on the fire side, is this a prototype the department is trying out or did he just get it modified? Credits are in the photo

    New and improved FDNY gloves

    I heard that new gloves are going to be issued all FF's and are alot better than the old ones. Did anyone else hear this? I think it would be good considering the ones issued now suck. My pair always stiffens up and has terrible grip, its like your wearing oven mitts.
