In Kingston we are provided tvek, coveralls and new fitted bunker gear.  We use a firefighter helmet that is a structural firefighting helmet with affixed safety goggles.

For respirators we currently have a powered PAPR with soft MSA soft mask with drinking tube.  This prevents PAPR from fogging up and allows a camera to be pulled close to the eye.  We are in the process of moving towards full SCBA.

Hope this helps.
