Among so many obstacles on the fire ground, extreme heat dramatically increases the risk of heat-related health emergencies. In fact, heat stress may contribute to the leading cause of death for firefighters on the job: cardiac events. In addition to ambient temperature and heavy work, one of the main factors that can contribute to heat stress is the firefighter’s PPE. Discover PPE choices that improve the health and safety of firefighters through heat management and dissipation while protecting them from the external thermal threat.
