As an emergency service worker, there’s a lot to think about when you’re at work. From making sure you’re able to look after patients to the best of your ability to making split-second decisions in life or death situations, there’s a lot to consider.
One of the things you will need to think about it the uniform you wear and accessories you may need during the job. That’s why Alexandra has put together this list to help you keep track of the clothing and items you may need to wear or keep with you during your daily shifts.
Always remember that this guide serves as just a helpful suggestion, and you should always check your workplace private or NHS uniform guidelines before purchasing any uniform.
The key to the trousers paramedics wear is durability and utility. You’ll often be working away from the ambulance, so you’ll need trousers that help you carry as much equipment as possible.
Paramedic Combat Trousers
The best choice of trousers for paramedics are combat trousers. Featuring two hip pockets and two thigh pockets, they give you enough space to carry all of your most-used equipment on the go. Being made from a heavy-duty polyester/cotton mix, they’re durable enough to last the often testing pace paramedics have to work at.
When you’re thinking of buying accessories, you need to think about the space you have available to carry them and the benefits they can give you on the job. Only keep with you the accessories you really need, and these will often be the ones that either help you do your job more efficiently, keep you safe or keep you warm.
