Does anyone know if NFPA recommends how often Structural Fire Fighting gear must be replaced? I had heard it was 7 years.

The average life span of a set of turnout gear is approximately 5 years...providing it was cared for, cleaned regularly and had repairs done on an as needed basis.. of course, one fire involving methylethyltrichlorodiflouromonobromonastybuttbadc rap will ruin it!"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
