NFPA regarding use of PPE
Posted: Tue Jan 20, 2015 8:50 pm
Hi folks, new here so forgive me if I'm in the wrong area. Recently an officer in my department made comments about NFPA regulations regarding safety. This officer does not wear any form of PPE or even reflective clothing at a scene, even when standing next to the door of a fully involved house fire. When it was suggested that perhaps an NFPA regulation might address this, he said there was not. More officers have followed this officers lead and stopped wearing bunker gear on scene. Is this a personal choice or is there a regulation within NFPA standards that could be used to help address this issue?
