The most important investment a firefighter must make are in the boots he or she wears on the job. Firefighters cannot afford to be distracted by unnecessary discomfort and pain as they try to save the lives and property of others. Firefighting boots can be classified as Structural, USAR, Wildland, HAZMAT, or any combination of these mentioned. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) establishes standards for safety in fire fighter boots. At HAIX®, we meet the standard with the selection of fire fighter boots we offer.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is the gold standard for protective gear worn by firefighters in extreme conditions. NFPA certification is strict. A manufacturer’s products, such as leather firefighter boots, need to be rigorously tested under specific conditions before they receive NFPA certification.
