(WASHINGTON TIMES) — Nearly $70,000 worth of brand-new shirts ordered by the District’s fire department have gone unused because they are adorned with the wrong emblem, fire officials testified Wednesday.

The 1,750 National Fire Protection Association-compliant polo-style shirts were ordered in October 2010, according to a purchase order obtained by The Washington Times through a Freedom of Information Act request.
