Protection -- Manikin Burning Test

When firefighters battle a fire, what they wear and carry can become a burden for moving around and result in injury or death. How heavy can it be? To fight a fire, a firefighter wears a helmet with neck and eye protection, gloves, goggles, a coat, pants and suspenders and leather or waterproof boots. In addition, each firefighter will be carrying a Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) and tools including pry bars or axes, radios, masks, etc. By the end, firefighters are carrying about 70lbs (32kg) of gears on their bodies. KANOX Ultra Light 2kg firefighter suit is specifically designed to reduce weight on firefighters without compromising their life safety.
