IMPORTANT KEY POINTS 

WHAT IS VERIFIED ISP?
It is an Independent Service Provider that must meet NFPA standards, any provider you use to maintain your PPE should be a full service Verified ISP. Why is this important? It means that your provider annually meets the current editions of NFPA 1851 for turnouts and 1855 for technical rescue garments, for all layers and materials used by your fire department. It’s critical that the ISP has been verified to your specific materials.
HOW DO YOU CLEAN PPE?
Turnout gear is made up of several layers, and each layer takes on a different role in keeping the firefighter safe. Layers should be separated so that they can be cleaned individually and not cross contaminate.
HOW DO YOU DRY YOUR GEAR?
Drying gear is a very important step in the process of getting your gear cleaned. Gear should be dried out of direct sunlight. The ideal way would be air dry in an enclosed room to remove moisture. This process can take hours, but it preserves the integrity and safety of the turnout gear and prevents hardware on outer-shells from damaging fabrics in a mechanical dryer.
HOW DO YOU CHECK LINER SYSTEMS?
Hydro-Testing | Moisture barrier leakage tests should be performed on moisture barriers that are three years and older from manufacture date. A complete liner system inspections should be performed.
WHEN IS YOUR ADVANCED INSPECTION PERFORMED?
At least once a year an Advanced inspections should be performed or AFTER an advanced cleaning takes place. Accumulated soil can hide damage on gear, which means an issue could be overlooked. Remember, all layers should be inspected individually.
