Besides turnout gear, the station uniform is the firefighter’s go-to apparel. Firefighters arrive to work in it, complete station duties and, when a call comes in, quickly don their turnout gear over the top.
Considering the amount of time firefighters spend in their uniforms, it’s easy to see why selecting apparel that enhances safety and comfort is key.
