Protective clothing is one of the most important tools that firefighters have to protect themselves while in the line of duty.
A firefighter’s turnout gear must be tough and durable, while maintaining comfort and breathability to minimize fatigue and heat stress while wearing it. Firefighters may be asked to respond to any number of various scenarios in a given day; their turnout gear must allow them the flexibility to respond to a vehicle accident, ventilate a roof, or fight a three-alarm blaze.
Turnout gear is comprised of three distinct layers: the thermal liner, the moisture barrier and the outer shell. Each serves specific multiple functions.
