INFORMATION & IDEAS
To kick off the “Together We Rise to any Challenge” project, we awarded a station house entertainment system to one of this year’s participants. This year’s winner is Patrick O’Rourke from the Garden City Fire Department in Wallingford, Pennsylvania. Congratulations, Patrick.
For over 40 years, DuPont™ Nomex® and Kevlar® have been committed to providing material solutions that help improve the safety of workers—from industrial workers to EMTs and firefighters. ‘Together We Rise to Any Challenge’ was created to help document the life-saving stories of firefighters through a combination of videotaped interviews and individual portraits.
For maximum protection against fires, the body must be covered as completely as possible with flame-resistant protective clothing. This requires long pants and long sleeves, making for hot work in warm and humid climates. Understandably, industrial workers may be concerned about potential heat stress when wearing protective apparel. Learn more about the factors that can lead to heat stress, and how DuPont brands can help offer comfort and protection in protective garments.
