|Ranger Combat Ready gear|
Honeywell First Responder Products, the makers of Morning Pride protective clothing for firefighters, is launching a new brand of bunker gear called Ranger Combat Ready.
The product line, according to the company, is designed to meet the needs of departments looking for affordable, lightweight, high-performance, stress-reducing turnout gear.
“We found ways to reduce weight without compromising safety or comfort,” said Alan Schierenbeck, Honeywell’s garment product manager. “We wanted to produce a set of gear that protected firefighters from the heat of the blaze as well as from the stress on the body caused by the exertion needed to fight it. With the leading cause of line of duty deaths being heart attacks, firefighters need gear that works with them, not against them.”
Honeywell branded the gear under the Ranger name to tie it to the company’s successful line of fire boots.
Ranger gear is available through selected leading fire product distributors. It will be sized to fit individual firefighters and will come with a wide list of available options, colors and materials.
The new line will be certified to the 2007 edition of the National Fire Protection Association 1971 standard on protective ensembles for structural firefighting.
