Facial hair on Firemen
Our policy states the following:
-Only facial hair allowed will be sideburns no more than 1/4 inch from earlobe.
-Mustache hair will be no longer than 1/4 inch below the corner of upper and lower lips.
Vollies now have their own little fun and games with this,some Depts. are very progressive and in line with our policies and some arent.
I know of one Volunteer Fire Dept. "Ball Ground F.D. in Ga."
The Chief and Assistant Chief "Position by popular vote each year" both have full beards and mustaches.
I as well as many others feel this to be a slap in the face of traditional grooming standards for Suppression personnel not to mention the safety and lead by example discrepencies!
Real Firemen don't have beards anyway!
