All gear (structural/wildland/station) meets all of the NFPA standards. When purchasing structural gear, the department follows NFPA 1971 and when managing the gear we follow NFPA 1851. Beginning in 2010, BCFD began to purchase an additional set of structural gear for all personnel. The goal is to have an additional set of gear for each person by the end of 2011. Wildland gear follows the NFPA 1977 standard and the station wear follows the NFPA 1975 standard.
