ABSTRACT
The article cites a study that compares the visibility of American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) 107 and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1971 compliant garments to ensure first responder safety. It mentions that there is no apparent difference between ANSI/ISEA-compliant Class 2 vests and an ANSI/ISEA 207 compliant vest. It indicates that the most important factor related to the visibility of first responders is time of the day.
