NFPA survey wants firefighter info on eye, face protection

The survey will collect data to help determine whether there should be any changes made to NFPA 1971 and 1985 standards

By FireRescue1 Staff

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The NFPA 1971/1985 Task Group on Eye and Face Protection released a survey to help develop minimum standards for fire and EMS eye and face protection. 

Firefighters currently use partial face-shields, bourkes and goggles. However, many remove all form of face and eye protection from their helmet, and often times protection is damaged or dirtied. Hence, the concern of contamination and chemical exposure is a growing concern. 

The data collected from the survey will be used to determine if there should be any changes made to the NFPA 1971 and 1985 standards. 

The survey takes about five minutes to complete and is anonymous. You can take the survey here.
