New kits to make for safer firefighting
Firefighters across the county will have new, lighter fire suits to help improve safety
DAVENTRY, U.K. — Firefighters across the county will be kitted out in new, lighter fire suits to help improve safety, the local authority has said.

The authority has started the search for a new contact and first among the considerations is that the “new fire- fighting textile technology” developments are up-to-datebefore the council will sign off on it.
