Cost to Fit a Firefighter
A firefighter relies heavily on what he is wearing to protect him in a fire. It consists of two layers: an outer layer for keeping the firefighter dry and an inner thermal layer meant for temperature control. Advances in fire-resistant materials and equipment technology make saving lives safer but it comes at a cost—more than $15,000 to outfit a single firefighter! Although the expense is staggering, the lives of your loved ones are priceless. You can help us save safer in our community by donating toward any item in our firefighter’s turnout gear.
