Mitigate occupational hazards and keep fire fighters safe. Choose PPE that complies with the 2013 NFPA 1971.

For fire fighters, facing danger every day is part of the job. Safeguard lives and help them work effectively on the fireground with NFPA 1971: Standard on Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting. This critical document establishes minimum levels of protection from thermal, physical, environmental, and bloodborne pathogen hazards encountered during structural and proximity fire fighting operations. Optional provisions for limited protection from specified chemicals, biological agents, and radiological particulates (CBRN) terrorism agents are also included.

NFPA 1971 applies to design, performance, testing, and certification for structural and proximity fire fighting ensembles and ensemble elements that include coats, trousers, coveralls, helmets, gloves, footwear, and interface components.

Keep pace with major changes in the 2013 edition that improve protection, including:

  • Revised definitions, including facial feature headform, glove body, gusset, harness, tongue and several other terms
  • Revised performance requirements in Chapter 7, including those for the Man-in-Simulant (MIST) test and the chemical permeation resistance test
  • New test methods in Chapter 8 -- water immersion compressive heat resistance (WICHR); whole glove thermal protection performance; transmitted and stored energy; glove hand function; torque; and disintegration resistance.

The Standard also contains editorial revisions that improve usability. Make sure first responders are equipped for safety and success on the job. (Softbound, 145 pp., 2013)
