In the mid to late 1970's EMS Chiefs, Captains, Lieutenants, and Paramedics wore dark green pants and white shirts. Corpsmen (EMT / Vehicle Operators) wore light green shirts. Ambulance Technicians(EMT or Advanced First Aid & C.P.R. Certified functioned as attendant but not certified to drive) wore all white. M.V.O.'s (Motor Vehicle Operators who drove the ambulance but had no medical training) wore a light blue shirt and dark blue pants.
