PPE Technical Rescue
During an emergency, you can keep yourself safe with PPE built especially for rescue operations.
PPE Technical Rescue - PPE for Rescue Operations
Many firefighters perform emergency response functions beyond that of fighting flames. Technical rescue refers to retrieving civilians from dangerous situations and places like confined spaces, vehicle extrication, and rescues involving water, structural collapse, or wilderness conditions. Technical rescue firefighters need protective apparel that keeps them safe from water, chemicals, flames, and smoke. Firefighters also need their jackets, pants, jumpsuits, and boots to stand up to scratches, tears, and punctures, common hazards when performing technical rescue operations ranging from fire rescue to USAR (Urban Search & Rescue) situations.
