  • PPE for shore line and surface water operations

    i originally posted this inquiry on the Specialized Rescue forum without thinking that Underwater Rescue might also be appropriate. I'm wondering about best practices concerning PPE for shoreline and surface water operations. Our present SOGs mandate PFD, rescue helmet, whistle, rescue light (attached to PFD), and radio. What do other agencies mandate in their SOGs?

    Your requirements are pretty much standard. Some SOGs list work gloves, latex/nitrile gloves, and cutting tools (EMT shears, knives, etc.). Even if they aren't in SOGs, they should be kept handy. As divers, we are required to have multiple cutting devices. Conditions may call for surface personnel to use an immersion suit, a specific PFD type, harness, etc.
