    Wear decent clothing and footwear. You want to wear comfortable, stretchy, light weight clothing, as you don't know what assignment you will be given, you want to be able to move freely instead of been weighed down from wearing heavy jeans and a leather jacket. For footwear wear something comfortable, you don't want to be running around in high heels or dolly flats, go for footwear that have ankle support, as you don't want to be running away and falling over your own feet or losing your shoes.
