NFPA 1975 Uniform Shorts

My Town Manager asked me about the possibilities of our firefighters (I am Fire Chief) wearing uniform shorts during the summer heat.  I am no expert but it seems that the departments that allow the use of shorts are going against NFPA 1975.  Is this correct?  I realize that we are probably not in full compliance with our t-shirts but I am struggling to wrap my hands around the idea of shorts on duty.  Any help would be appreciated.  BTW this is my first time posting here.

 

Thanks,
