Hoses are a firefighter’s lifeline, whether providing water, protecting from fire, or even as a pathway out of danger. The various types of hoselines being produced by fire hose manufacturers run from large-diameter supply lines to firefighting handlines for structural and wildland use.

Structural turnout gear manufacturers say they see structural PPE continuing to change, improve, and be modified to become more adaptive to firefighters’ needs, yet still provide them with maximum protection.
