Members with tattoos and scarification must keep them covered by a Department-approved uniform or a skin patch while in the field.
A: Yes. Firefighters are members of one of the most physically demanding occupations in the world.

Firefighters, FSA’s and AO’s have different requirements; see the individual page for the details of each.
