The United States Army FIRES structural gear is part of the Ricochet Maximum Mobility series.

In 2010, a special program was developed to provide safe, standardized, and cost-effective PPE for U.S. Army Firefighters. Ricochet was called on to assist in the creation and replacement of the structural fire gear in the FIRES program, and we proudly answered the challenge!

Ricochet's U.S. Army FIRES structural gear was developed to meet the specific requirements of the U.S. Army including protection from physical hazards, flame resistance, and a liquid barrier to protect against chemical and bloodborne pathogen exposures while limiting the heat stress and load on the wearer. The garments are certified to NFPA 1971, Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting.

The materials of the M² USA FIRES structural gear include the following options:

  • Pioneer™ Gold 6.6 oz outer shell and Norfab OMNI Synergy™ 2L thermal liner, or...
  • Gemini™ Natural 7.5 oz outer shell and Caldura® ELITE SL2i thermal liner
  • GORE CROSSTECH® Black 2-layer moisture barrier
