LayerFlex

In a move away from the traditional approach to PPE design, firefighters are issued with fire coats and trousers designed for structural firefighting to be used for all operational activities. We have designed and introduced a new layered approach using three garments, which when used in different combinations, provide the required levels of protection for structural and wildland firefighting as well as technical rescue operations. These garments have been designed to ensure that a firefighter is wearing garments that are suitable for the role being undertaken, rather than wearing structural fire clothing for all roles (including Technical Rescue and Wildland firefighting).

The ensemble consists of three garments: A RescueFlex Jacket, An XFlex Outer Jacket, and An XFlex Trousers
