A world's first in PPE
Published:  07 July, 2010

In today’s climate, it is entirely possible that a firefighter can come into contact with CBRN materials at any time – and if so, there is a valid argument that a firefighter’s turn-out gear should include a level of CBRN protection. In the event of an incident, this type of combined garment would allow him to vacate the area safely, rescuing injured personnel while escaping. Jose Maria Sanchez de Muniain talks with Karen Lehtonen, Director (Products), Lion Apparel, about a new piece of kit that is said to be the world’s first fully certified structural firefighter CBRN ensemble.
