Urban Search and Rescue (USAR)
Standard EN ISO 11612 General Flame
More specialised garments are now being deployed in non-structural firefighting situations. Technical rescue PPE, often termed USAR, is now being used in confined space operations as well as road traffic accidents.
Bristol USAR garments have a two-layer construction incorporating a flame retardant outerlayer with a waterproof membrane to provide flexibility and physical protection against injury when deployed in collapsed buildings or damaged vehicles.
The USAR coat and trouser combination, which can be zipped together to form a single piece garment when required, has a Gore Crosstech SR moisture barrier coupled with a choice of outerlayer. The options include Nomex Delta C, Protex cotton or Kermel fabric. Available in a wide range of sizes, the ensembles are supplied in four colours including red, navy, orange and high-viz orange. Compatible accessories include helmet, boot and glove.
