We all know that firefighting boots need to protect you from the inherent hazards you encounter on the job, we have minimum NFPA standards that all firefighting boots have to meet to ensure that happens. But so much more can go into a fire boot that can take it beyond just the minimum.
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.
