The fire service continues to drive the movement for science-based research to better understand the fire environment and how tactics influence the fire conditions. Please join us for a free webinar on Thursday, January 17, 2019 – Science in the Fire Service: Research Update. To be conducted by Gavin Horn, PhD, this webcast will share the latest firefighter research and its implications for the fire service. The latest results from the ISFSI/UL FSRI Basement Fires Study, UL FSRI Fire Attack Study, and IFSI/UL FSRI/NIOSH PPE Cleaning study will be shared and discussed, as well as ongoing fire research projects.
Take our 5-minute quiz to find out if you know how to safely put on and put off your PPE
This online program provides free training on the routine and advanced inspection and cleaning of protective clothing and footwear in accordance with NFPA 1851.
Firefighters can better protect themselves by practicing wet-soap decon practices and other advanced cleaning procedures as outlined in NFPA 1851, Standard on Selection, Care and Maintenance of Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting. Plus, they can also tap into many free online resources offered by companies like Globe.
Are you prepared for cold weather calls? What you put on your feet really makes a difference where your safety is concerned. While no footwear can eliminate all slips and falls, Arctic Grip Pro soles on Globe’s athletic construction boots take firefighter footwear to the highest level of performance and safety available. In collaboration with Vibram, we undertook three scientific tests to prove that our Globe boots with the new soles can help to reduce slips and falls in cold and wet conditions.
Globe was invited to participate in a talk radio show hosted by the International Association of Women in Fire & Emergency Services to discuss the importance of personal protective equipment. Pat Freeman, Globe Technical Services Manager, and Stephanie McQuade, Globe Marketing Services Manager, addressed the construction and materials for turnout gear, proper care and cleaning, and the importance of being fitted correctly for PPE.
