In Technical Rescue, readiness is key. You train to be put to the test, to use your skills for, in some cases, the unthinkable. Tech Rescue can be highly risky, but has a relatively low frequency of need. So, you must be prepared because you could be called out in a moment’s notice. So, you prepare. With your training and with your gear. Equipping yourself with the best equipment is tantamount to a successful operation. This includes your PPE, which can be all that is between you and the hazards you encounter on an operation. Choosing the right footwear can make all the difference, especially on a rescue that requires you to be on your feet for hours. Personal safety is paramount, but should you have to sacrifice comfort as well?
