Public Safety


Fire Rescue workers who tackle fires in residential, commercial, and industrial settings would need the right first responder protection equipment as they face extreme heat, intense smoke & even explosive environments. Putting their lives on the line, risking burns and injuries from debris are part of their day-to-day. In the face of danger, they must maneuver through confined spaces, navigate dark and complex structures, and conduct search and rescue operations to save lives.

Furthermore, hazmat workers are skilled at handling chemical spills, leaks, and other hazardous substance incidents. Hazmat protection and CBRN protection is important as these courageous individuals regularly face exposure to toxic gases, corrosive chemicals, flammable materials, and biological hazards.
Law and correction officers or correctional workers face a range of hazards such as physical assault, exposure to hazardous substances which includes illicit drugs, chemicals or even exposure to infectious diseases in correctional facilities. Having the appropriate first responder protection equipment protects them as they protect the public from harm. Personal protective equipment for police officers includes abrasion protection gloves, cut protection gloves, and more.
