Firefighters from all across the country converged on Raleigh, North Carolina this week to attend presentations given by F.I.E.R.O. (the Fire Industry Educational Resource Organization.) The biennial conference boasted a record attendance rate and offered informational sessions on a wide range of subjects of interest to firefighters everywhere. TenCate Protective Fabrics, along with other industry leaders, were on hand to help sponsor the event. F.I.E.R.O. operates as a not-for-profit organization that seeks to further the continuing education of firefighters on subjects that have a direct bearing on their safety, health and well being. Topics from PPE (personal protective equipment) to heat stress and related physiological effects, as well as firefighting tactics were covered in great detail.
TenCate Protective Fabrics is a long-time sponsor of F.I.E.R.O. and will continue to support the efforts of the organization in the future. Firefighters need to be kept abreast of what’s happening in the fire service and to be made aware of new training, policies and technologies that will effect the way they do their jobs. TenCate is proud to partner with F.I.E.R.O. as well as other industry thought leaders and influencers, to ensure that their good work and service will be available for years to come. The safety and well being of firefighters is a paramount concern for TenCate Protective Fabrics and we will continue to do everything we can to make sure that firefighters have the tools and knowledge they need to stay safe and healthy.
