Protecting the firefighter underneath
Once the alarm sounds, it's go time. Firefighters have just minutes to slip into their fire protection gear with one task at hand upon reaching the scene – protect those in distress. Be safe in knowing that the task of protecting the firefighter is already covered. Reduce firefighters’ exposure to hazardous elements with certified firefighter hoods and other protective neck gaiters, hats, and head covers for professional use by BUFF® Safety.

Importance of quality firefighter ppe
There are various hazards posed to firefighters by exposure to open flames, smoke, soot, and other dangers while providing the wide variety of services that comprise a firefighter’s job. To mitigate any type of risks that might occur, adequate, high-class personal protective equipment (PPE), including firefighter balaclavas, is a must for firefighter protection. No other area of the firefighters' PPE requires more attention than the interface areas from the neck up. It's critical for every firefighter's protection to have a fire-resistant balaclava hood of sufficient length and proper degree of elasticity under a helmet that fits properly, providing comfort in high-intensity situations.
