Fire Academy Friday: Structural PPE Construction, Features, and Functions

It’s Fire Academy Friday! LION Fire Academy provides fire department members with online training on PPE and Continuing Education Units for successful completion.  Fire instructors can incorporate PPE education into their classes and have their students earn credits.  If you are a fire student or contemplating a career in firefighting, you’ll find helpful quizzes, videos and links on PPE and other firefighting topics.

NFPA 1851 and NFPA 1500 training modules are valid for any brand of PPE.

What are the components of your PPE elements? What is the purpose and limitations of each element in your structural PPE? This week’s video covers these questions and more.

After you’ve finished watching, take the test.
