Damage Control Firefighter Coverall Replacement

 

As the Damage Control Firefighter Coverall wear out from DC readiness training, they are being phase-replaced by the Fire Protective Gear (FPG). FLEET feedback provided improvements to the FPG. These included:

  1. The coverall has a removable liner to allow for ease of cleaning. Repairs of the outer shell are made easier.
  2. The inside of the liner has a slick material, which helps toward ease of donning along with longer leg zippers.
  3. The shoulders are padded to maintain thermal protection when wearing breathing apparatus with straps.
  4. The wristlets are over the thumb, with larger thumbholes.
  5. The coverall has a freedom arm design, which allows movement of the arm without movement of the entire suit.

The FPG is available in 18 sizes in order to accommodate any special requirement. However, the AEL (2-930094085 – 4087) has listed standard five sizes: small-regular, medium-regular, large-regular, extra large-regular and extra large-long.
