Phase 3 Research - A. Heat strain in Fire Fighting PPE. B. Physiological cost of movement in Fire Fighting PPE. C. Flame Protection of Fire Fighter PPE
Series of three studies investigating three prototype fire fighter personal protective equipment (PPE) clothing ensembles: structural fire fighting ensemble; rescue fire fighting ensemble; & layered fire fighting ensemble. The three studies investigate differences in a. heat strain when working and recovering in UK summer conditions; b. the physiological cost of movement when undertaking a series of fire fighter relevant activities, and; c. the flame protection of these ensembles when exposed to life-threatening flame exposures. All of these in support of the UK Fire Service Collaborative PPE programme, managed by Kent Fire & Rescue Service.
