    Cool Traffic Vests and ANSI 107 versus 207 ??

    Anyone know if the new ANSI 207 vests have been OKed to use in place of the older version 107??

    I am finding "Fire Vests" with the ANSI 207 and want to make sure I am still in compliant. I know at the time of the law passage prior to November 2008 ANSI 207 was not out or completely defined from what I am reading.

    Let me know, thanks!

    My last understanding was that the 207 vests were considered acceptable alternatives.

    You can probably find something more black-and-white at ResponderSafety.com.



    Edited to add: I happened to be perusing the site I posted above and the first story I clicked on was about the MUTCD 2009 edition being released. In this revision of the MUTCD ANSI-207 vests are included as approved PPE.

    Question Is the ANSI 207 current then by the powers to be?

    Here is the reply I received:

    Absolutely. See our analysis of the 2009 Edition of the MUTCD that was published just prior to Christmas.
    Thanks for being a reader.
