First Responder Gear
Particulate Protection and Heat Stress Relief
Firefighters are regularly exposed to burns, smoke inhalation and crush injuries. They are also exposed to heat stress, toxic chemicals and dangerous particles, which leads to severe job-related illnesses, from heart diseases to cancer and sudden cardiac deaths.
Honeywell has created first responder clothing that blocks a substantial portion of dangerous particulates from getting onto firefighters’ skin while maintaining breathability and encouraging air circulation throughout the gear to combat heat stress.
Using innovative materials, Honeywell has created first responder gears that reduce exposure to smoke particles and their persistence in clothing materials. Thus, the amount of dangerous, potentially cancer-causing toxins that can reach first responders’ skin is substantially reduced.
With Honeywell first responder gear, firefighters are better protected and that allows them to focus on protecting others.
