The following is a list of required equipment. It is presented in stages in the order it is recommended to be acquired. Items that are in bold characters are the preferred variation of that particular piece of uniform or equipment. Italicized items are acceptable or not required. While the unit does maintain loaner gear you can't use it forever! The stages are a minimum timeline. You should endeavor to have your own gear as soon as possible. It is strongly recommended that you confirm with your unit sponsor PRIOR to buying anything. This will help avoid you making the common recruit mistake of buying things you can't use. Do yourself a favor!
