As any fire service worker can tell you, fighting fires is complex. There’s more to it than you may think. And those complexities are further compounded by the environment where the fire burns. What we commonly refer to as “forest fires” or “wildfires” actually fall into two distinct categories: Wildlands and Wildlands Urban Interface (WUI). Wildlands fires are those that break out in uninhabited areas—often forests, but also prairies and other wilderness areas. WUI fires are fought at the intersection of those wilderness areas and occupied areas—places where people live, work and play. Each has its own set of complications and difficulties, and as such, each requires specific PPE to keep firefighters safe. Workrite Fire Service proudly offers garments that meet the standards for both.
