Equipment

The equipment a firefighter uses is vital to his or her survival and to the person whom is being saved. Without it, the firefighter would not be able to enter a burning building, rescue someone sealed in a care or scale a building. Each piece of equipment is unique and has a specific purpose. A professional firefighter must know each part and how to use it in order to be successful.

Bunker Gear is the actual equipment firefighters wear. It keeps them from being burned and makes it possible for them to survive within the flames.

Like all professions, firefighters have certain tools to perform their jobs. Although the bunker gear allows the firefighter to enter the smoke-filled buildings, it would accomplish nothing if they did not have the correct tools. These tools provide the firefighter with oxygen, sounds an alarm if they are down and assets in entering buildings.
