In April 2010, the London Fire Brigade introduced a new look - a blue fire kit.

The turnout gear is designed to integrate with breathing apparatus sets, chemical protection suits and other fire brigade equipment.

“We have taken advantage of the latest technology from an evolving and competitive market to purchase a replacement that is safe, light and comfortable," London Fire Commissioner Roy Dobson said.

"The safety of our firefighters is of paramount importance and the new fire kit will meet the exacting standards demanded by the London Fire Brigade,” Dobson said.
