What Do We Do?
NFPA 1851 requires that the firefighter turnout gear have an advanced cleaning once a year at a minimum.
Cleaning is a critical first step in the maintenance program. Clean gear performs better, lasts longer and is all around safer.
NFPA 1851 also requires that firefighter turnout gear have an advanced inspection once a year. This includes a thorough inspection of all three layers and a hydro-static test on the moisture barrier.

Why is it important to have my equipment checked frequently?
Gear needs to be cleaned in order to maintain its protection properties, clean gear will last longer, protect better and keep products of combustion and carcinogens off the wearer. The gear is checked to maintain integrity, and the three layers of the gear need to be inspected yearly to make sure they are intact and functioning as designed.
