So it is easier to see them at night. The light bounces off the reflective clothing and you can see the fireman clearly. Also, you don't expect to see many people walking around wearing metallic silver clothes so the fire fighters are very distinctive.
The pants, coats, and helmets firefighters wear serve two functions. First, the material of the clothing is treated with flame resistant chemicals. So an ember will be kept away from the skin. Second, the "shiny" quality is called reflective. Reflective stripes act the same as reflective lights on a bicycle or car. When light shines on the reflective material, it illuminates. Fires, though full of light in the fire itself, take out the electricity. So buildings are very dark. Lights on helmets, hand held flashlights, or floodlights from outside would illuminate the firefighter. In addition, firefighter gear contains alarms, plus the oxygen tanks set off an alarm when the tank is low on O2. So the alarms plus the reflective clothing makes firefights more visible and easier to find if the firefighter is in trouble.
When the World Trade towers I and 2 came down in NYC on 9/11, a massive dust cloud filled NY streets, turning morning to a shadowy darkness. From multiple sites, all you could hear were firefighter's personal emergency alarms going off along with the cries and screams of pedestrians and residents. The reflective clothing was coated with dust, so the men weren't seen as much as heard.
To enable them to be seen in smoky buildings ! The material is not only brightly coloured - to be seen in daylight, it's also reflective - ti show up under torchlight in dark places !
It's called a space suit
"Refrigeration can be used to retard the growth of the bacterial culture"
gumby suit is a common term for a survival suit. They are used to protect someone abandoning a sinking ship in the ocean.
natural materials such as: plants( fake usually last longer and can handle more combat) some type of suit( i suggest a sweat suit) and netting( the netting is to weave your materials into the suit. helpful suggestion: study your surrounding ( combat zone) to help make your guillie suit blend better.
Yes you get wet wearing a wet suit. Though it's a called a wet suit it's main properties are to keep you warmer and provided buoyancy
It is slightly misleading to say that they are "made of" shiny material. The bulk of these suits is a form of thermal insulator, to prevent the conduction of heat to the fire-fighter's body. The shiny material is a thin layer on the outside of the suit; it is there because shiny stuff reflects heat away from the suit.
a space suit is made up of metal and is shiny........!....!!
a type of outer garment used by fire fighters, it has rubber components to minimize water as well as fire hazards. Yellow is a high-visibility color- saw plenty of these at recent Bally Gym fire in Jersey City.- almost two months ago.
The water suit
The answer is in the name. A Proximity suit is only used to get close to the fire, while an entry suit is used to walk through fire.
you put your fire suit on then you press D on the keyboard!
A NASCAR fire retardant suit can cost about $140.
White and hard, also shiny.
That is not so difficult the space suit is very shiny because the sun at it is so big you have reflected in your suit the sun rays that are so powerful and makes it shine.
