Gold Uniforms For Hampshire Firefighters
Firefighters in Hampshire will be sporting a new and improved gold-coloured fire kit from Thursday 17th May, replacing the previous dark-colour kit.
This role out of new personal protection equipment (PPE) will also include helmets, gloves and boots which form part of the new kit.
The new kit delivers a high technical specification and a more ergonomic design therefore increasing its usability for frontline staff.
The uniform will be phased into Hampshire's 51 fire stations, replacing existing stock as necessary due to wear and tear and ensuring the changeover is as cost efficient as possible.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service took the decision to introduce the new fire kit in June 2010 after seven of the fire services in the South East Region agreed to a joint project in order to create a strong and professional regional identity, whilst also delivering efficiency savings for each fire service.
Malcolm Freemantle, Station Manager and project lead for Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, says: "Our main aim is always to provide the best possible PPE for our firefighters."
