Heat stress (info required) due to protective clothing
I need any info regarding the affects of heat stress due to the new fire fighting protective clothing. Turnout gear, Bunker gears what ever you want to call it.
29 years as a Firefighter and I find this gear very hard to work in due to the internal heat build up. Summer down here is Australia 40 deg C or 104 F + are common temperatures.
