Isn't camouflage not what you want to wear in the woods fighting fire? I just assume you want to be seen vs. blend in.
Honestly its not a priority to me, no matter what color we wear, its all going to be dirty within a good shift, our bright yellow shirts we wear fade and somewhat permanently absorb the "black". Even if you wash them regularly (which everyone should), its amazing how well they blend in in the woods unless they are brand new. Helmets stand out more than anything and if someone needs to locate me (incoming helo for bucket work for example) I'll be using an 1,100 lumen strobe or mirror flash. The generally issued pants are green.
