HAMPTON, Va. – Hampton Fire and Rescue strapped on new gear Tuesday.
They recently purchased black vests.
“They’re technically ballistic vest and one of the big differences in that is everyone believes they are bulletproof, they’re not,” Battalion Chief Anthony Chittum explained to News 3. “They’re called a level three and they’re made to stop a certain level threat.”
Chittum said they started planning to buy the armor about a year ago.
They decided to spend $650 on each one due to rising concerns nationwide about first responders safety when dispatched to 911 calls.
“We really wanna look at it as an insurance policy. We would rather have the added protection and not need it, than when all of a sudden an emergency comes up and we don’t have the equipment,” he said.
Fire officials said crews typically won’t wear the vest if they’re responding to something like a house fire. Read more
