Cancer Is the Number One Killer of Firefighters

Clean gear now is more important than ever.

We continue to monitor the developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are taking measures to ensure our service to you remains at the highest level of quality. While our business operations have not been impacted, we have made the decision to limit employee travel and in-person meetings. We apologize to those with whom we’ve had to cancel in-person meetings with but are confident in our ability to continue to deliver exceptional service via conference calls. Additionally, many of our team members will be working remotely to reduce the risk of spreading the virus in the community. We do not anticipate any service interruptions and will continue to provide you with the support you have come to expect and appreciate. Thank you for your patience.

Clean Gear is Healthy Gear

Turnout Gear is designed to protect a firefighter in a fire. Poorly maintained gear does not protect the firefighter as well as it should, and poorly cleaned gear does not mitigate the carcinogens. This impacts the long term health of firefighters. This is why HAWAII PPE is dedicated to providing firefighters with clean gear. 

Compliance to NFPA 1851 requires bi-annual advanced cleaning and inspection by a verified ISP, as well as a care and maintenance program in the departments. HAWAII PPE offers this program to fire stations. Complete advanced inspection and repairs performed at our facilities include test and repair liners and moisture barriers – both critical to the safety of the fire fighters. In case of death or injury, tracking information on gear is essential for liability. Our facility has the best technology for tracking advanced cleaning and repairs for this reason.

Proper care and maintenance of your PPE lengthens the life of the gear, thus impacting expenditures. Clean gear is healthy gear, and healthy gear saves lives.


Contact us today for more information about our care and maintenance plans, advanced inspections, and our repair services.
