NFPA 1977 - Wildland Gear

The NFPA 1977 Standard focuses on keeping the wearer from overheating while still providing heat and flame resistance.

The 1977 standard was created specifically to combat heat stress in wildland firefighting, based on the original Wildland subcomittee's findings in 1989 that the majority of firefighters' injuries were related to heat stress during these types of operations.
