Firefighting Protective Clothing - Wildlands

Elliotts recommends that a wildland firefighter's protective clothing should be comfortable, breathable, lightweight, highly visible, allow the wearer to move freely, and offer overall protection in the hazardous fire-fighting environment.

 

Wildland protective clothing is designed to be worn during bushfires or wildland firefighting and associated activities. It is not intended to provide protection during fire entrapment. Wildland fire fighting involves work primarily in hot summer temperatures, for many hours in which the firefighter may develop high levels of metabolic heat.

 

Consequently, the protective clothing should be light, flexible, and commensurate with the risks to which the firefighter may be exposed in order to be effective. Wildland clothing should be designed to not only protect but also assist in managing metabolic heat. It must assist in keeping the firefighter cool, by allowing body heat to escape.
