Tuesday Tech Question presented by Evans Coolant

Question:

I had a Technical Inspector tell me that, even though they were dated the same year, my 3.2A/15 fire suit was expired, but my 38.1 head and neck restraint was still legal.  Could you provide me with some more information?

Answer:

A 3.2A/15 and 3.2A/20 suit is considered legal for 5 years.  The date on the suit is included in that 5 year span.  A 38.1 head and neck restraint expires at the end of the month marked, 5 years after being inspected.  For a better clarification, please refer to the chart below.
