MES and TECGEN Brand Introduce Newest in Dual-Certified PPE

TECGEN® Rescue80™Greenville, SC—INVISTA’s TECGEN® brand has teamed up with Municipal Emergency Services (MES) to introduce its newest in dual-certified PPE, TECGEN® Rescue80™. TECGEN Rescue80 garments are available exclusively through Municipal Emergency Services.

TECGEN gear is dual certified for NFPA 1951 Technical Rescue and NFPA 1977 Wildland. Available in black or tan, TECGEN  Rescue80  garments contain new features to promote visibility and functionality by utilizing three-inch Reflexite® reflective trim and multiple advanced pockets designed to carry everything from smart phones to radios to extrication tools.

“At MES, our mission is to provide first responders with the equipment and gear they need to respond to all types of emergencies,” says John Skaryak, vice president at Municipal Emergency Services. “The new MES exclusive TECGEN® Rescue80™ product gives firefighters an alternative to wearing bunker gear on every call. Because the gear is lightweight, breathable and comfortable, it is ideal for wildland, extrication, MVAs, traffic control and incident command. We believe the exclusive features will help to further enhance functionality and responsiveness.”

Editor Chris Mc Loone tries on the TECGEN Rescue80 garment.“MES has carried our products for some time so we were excited when the company approached us about a collaborative effort to design a new, highly functional, multi-use garment,” said Todd Herring, director of TECGEN® protective apparel. “Eighty percent of calls firefighters respond to are not structure fires. TECGEN® Rescue80™ garments are designed for the types of calls firefighters respond to the most. We are looking forward to teaming up with MES to expand our product line and continuing to bring cutting-edge innovation to the firefighter community.”
