Ukrainian rescuers are about to receive the new uniform. The Cabinet of Ministers approved the order on new uniform samples and rank insignias on February 14.
The State Emergency Service's press office showed the pictures of the new uniform.
The rescuers will receive new oil-silk cold-weather coats, service jackets, sweaters, trousers, shirts and cloaks. All clothes are dark blue; shirts are blue and white.
Besides, there will be patches with the name of the State Emergency Service, with ‘Ukrainian rescuer’ sign, one patch with the national flag and one with a viburnum stick on the uniform. Besides, rank insignias will change; shoulder marks will have a different shape and color, too.
The new uniform meets the requirements of the new Civil Defense Code. Earlier, rescuers’ uniform standards were outlined in the governmental order in August 2005 and haven’t changed since.
