Fire service is developed with the changes of the times. Now, firefighters’ clothing can be roughly divided into two types: one is integrated vertically and the other is upper and lower body (tops and pants).
Fire service is an important tool used by firefighters to protect the body during firefighting activities. Therefore, it must have the following characteristics:
1 Considered from the perspective of protection, it must be fire-resistant, heat-resistant, and heat-insulating as well as strong and tough to prevent impacts and collisions of sharp objects. In addition, it must have the ability to prevent chemical damage to the skin;
2 to adapt to changes in the external environment, such as cold and warm, wind and rain, can maintain physical strength and exuberant energy;
3 From the aspect of operational efficiency, fire service suits should have room for movement in their operations and try to use materials with good stretching performance. Also, the texture, shape, and structure of clothing should be carefully studied.
4 Considering safety management and force co-ordination, it is imperative that the superior and the subordinate must be effective to ensure that the fire protection service is playing its due role.
