In this video, Bulwark Protection’s Technical Training Manager Derek Sang discusses why firefighters might think wearing polyesters as day-to-day station wear is no big deal—but how misguided that notion can be. Derek references known turnout gear safety data as well as evidence that proves in real-world flashover conditions, your base layer of polyester performance fabric can easily reach the point of melting. So a systems approach to PPE for firefighters, starting with the layer closest to the skin, makes so much more sense.
