PPE body armor provides better firefighter protection for the most dangerous of calls.

Tactical Vests and Armor Plates

Responding to an emergency doesn’t always mean you’ll be fighting a fire. Firefighter body armor typically consists of a tactical vest that doubles as a plate carrier, allowing the wearer to attach necessary equipment to the vest and place body armor plates in strategic areas. Curtis - Tools for Heroes understands what firefighters need when they step in the line of duty and provides several options for body armor vests and plates.

Body Armor Personal Protective Equipment

Firefighter PPE body armor protects your torso from projectiles, helping to keep your vital organs safe and offering more protection in those potentially dangerous situations. Besides the ability to protect you, body armor vests offer more areas for carrying equipment, often with attachment straps or MOLLE platforms. Curtis only offers premier body armor brands that every firefighter can trust, including 5.11 Tactical, First Tactical, PROTECH, and Safariland.
