  • PSOB benefits and NFPA

    Hey guys,

    Quick question. If a firefighter was to die in the line of duty and is using OSHA gear (department is only OSHA), will the Department of Justice deny PSOB benefits without wearing NFPA standard PPE gear? Also if they are wearing all NFPA gear but the SCBA from the department is OSHA certified will that also disqualify from PSOB benefits? Thanks so much!

    Good luck getting anything useful out of it.

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

        Need to divulge a bit more info. When and why did the dept buy OSHA compliant SCBA?
