Check Out The Spiffy New Prince Rupert Firefighters Uniforms

The new gear is safe and fashionable.

[This story originally appeared on The North Coast Review, a blog based in Prince Rupert that contains “items of interest to those living on the North Coast of BC.”]

The next time you see a Prince Rupert Fire vehicle off responding to a call, keep an ear out for perhaps the strains of ZZ Top’s classic rock hit Sharp Dressed Man, for the Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue Department is breaking in some new duds.

In a Facebook post, the PRFD said their new gear has been selected to meet the high level of job-specific needs for the local firefighters. “The new firefighting gear comes with a large list of comforts, innovation and increases our firefighters safety,” it wrote.

The line of response gear comes from Starfield and features “Polymer-coated aramid reinforcements on knees and cuffs for long-lasting wear.”
