Safeguard emergency services personnel involved in surface water search and rescue with the 2015 NFPA 1952.

During surface water, tidal water, surf, and ice rescues, fire service and EMS personnel need to be protected from bloodborne or other liquidborne pathogens, along with other physical, environmental, thermal, and certain chemical and biological hazards. The 2015 NFPA 1952: Standard on Surface Water Operations Protective Clothing and Equipment specifies requirements for protective clothing and equipment used by responders.

Coverage addresses design, performance, testing, and certification for protective clothing and equipment items including full body suits, helmets, gloves, footwear, and personal flotation devices.

Chapters in NFPA 1952 address:

  • Certification
  • Labeling and Information
  • Design Requirements
  • Performance Requirements
  • Test Methods

Added coverage in the 2015 edition:

  • A new requirement for chemical hazard protection for dry suits
  • Revised dates for testing and certification

Keep emergency responders safe and protected with NFPA 1952 guidance. (Softbound, Approx. 60 pp., 2015)
