Fire Fighter Personal Protective Equipment

Reliable equipment is vital for fire fighters to do their job and stay safe. At NIOSH, we work to improve the personal protective equipment (PPE) used by fire fighters. Learn more about our current projects, published research, and conference presentations that focus on fire fighter PPE. There are many differences in equipment used by structural versus wildland fire fighters. For better searching, we separated our information based on these categories.
