    What is the scene? stopping a leak? or containing spill? If you anticipate contact with the product AND you can eliminate ALL ignition sources tyvek is a good idea (disclaimer) do you really want to be shrink wrap if it ignightes??? We use xxxlg saranex coated tyvek over structural turnouts OR if flammability is not a concern saranex coated tyvek over a nomex jumpsuit (justincase!). For plugging we've found oversized sleeves of tyvek fit over turnouts fine.

    PPE for diesel spills

    I have been perplexed with the proper PPE for diesel and other petroleum product spills. I understand the need for turnout gear due to fire/explosion hazards,however, on small spills or strictly oil products, would something other than turnout gear be a better option? I personally feel that tyvek or another material is better suited for spill cleanup as opposed to taking the change of oil based product contaminating the turnout gear. Looking for comments!
