NFPA 1971, Standard on Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting
This standard specifies the minimum design, testing, performance, and certification requirements for both structural and proximity firefighting ensembles and ensemble elements. Ensemble elements refer to coats, pants, coveralls, helmets, hoods, gloves, footwear, and interface components.
NFPA 1851, Standard on Selection, Care, and Maintenance of Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire
This standard is a companion document for NFPA 1971. NFPA 1851 is written to help end-users (i.e., the fire department) select, clean, inspect, and repair their structural firefighting protective ensembles and ensemble elements.
