PPE FOR PEOPLE WHO SAVE LIVES

Comparison of Fire Department Calls in 1980 & 2013 (in Millions)


Firefighters and rescue teams work in varied and complex environments that exponentially expose them to risk of on-the-job death and injury. The average number of on-duty deaths to occur annually has dropped over the past 30 years, which can be partially attributed to the advancements and improvements in personal protective equipments and their standards. However, because of modern synthetic building materials, structural fires burn hotter and faster than ever, leaving as little as a few minutes for rescues to be successful. Plus the type of calls that firefighters typically face have changed drastically, with a huge increase in need for medical aid. These emergency responders must be prepared for anything, and PIP is proud to offer the innovative and dependable products they need to stay safe on the job.

ADDITIONAL PROTECTION FOR EMS WORKERS

Gloves are a necessary barrier at a scene of an injury to protect an EMS worker. Studies also show that head protection should be more of a necessity as well, as head injuries are a leading cause of death and injury in the field.
