Your Safety. Your Performance. Our Commitment.
Did you know that the choice of protective barrier in your turnout gear has the most impact on breathability — more than any combined choice of outer shell and thermal barrier? If your body’s heat cannot escape from your gear, you run the risk of elevated heart rate, accelerated dehydration, and potential heat exhaustion.
In recent testing, GORE® protective barriers significantly outperformed the competition in breathability in the broader conditions that you encounter. This trial confirmed that wearing the GORE® PARALLON™ liner system delivered the highest breathability followed closely by GORE® CROSSTECH® black moisture barrier; both performed significantly better than the competition.
And, as a result of their durability proven both in the lab and in the field, all of our protective barriers are covered by industry-leading warranties.
Coronavirus Update: It is not practical to hold the 2020 Metro Conference in Pittsburgh on June 6-10, 2020 as planned. Therefore, the 2020 Metro Conference is cancelled. Additional details will be forthcoming. Please be patient, as this decision has placed an unprecedented burden on the Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire staff, who, like all other Metro departments, are also dealing with the COVID-19 issues.
Wishing everyone the best through these trying times.
