Technical Rescue Technical rescue crews face a variety of hazards.

Less than 20 percent of today’s fire department calls are for structural fires, so technical rescue gear is often better suited for daily responses because it manages heat stress better. As the only liquid barrier used in NFPA-compliant technical rescue gear, GORE® CROSSTECH® S/R fabric offers unparalleled breathability while meeting the liquid protection needs of technical response.

When searching through the rubble of a disaster, you can’t afford to be slowed down by sore feet or blisters. These problems most commonly occur when non-breathable footwear allows sweat to build up between your foot, sock, and boot. GORE® CROSSTECH® footwear fabrics are breathable and therefore allow foot perspiration to escape — keeping your feet cooler, drier, and more comfortable. That’s on top of the unsurpassed liquid penetration protection you get only from GORE® CROSSTECH® fabric.
