There have arguably been fewer collections of material more sentinel to the evolution of safer firefighting and firefighter health/wellness than the three pieces presented in this Fire-Dex-sponsored training digest.

Gaining a greater understanding of how our PPE specification may be contributing to heat stress is critical to future modifications, designs, and fabric choices. Understanding heat stress as it relates to cardiovascular risks provides critical insight into prefire, firefighting, and postfire activities.
