Blauer® Manufacturing has created the WZ9430 Major Incident Response Team (MIRT) suit, the law enforcement industry’s first breathable ensemble to be certified to NFPA 1994, Class 3 Standard. Made with a breathable, lightweight GORE® CHEMPAK® Selectively Permeable Fabric, the WZ9430 MIRT suit minimizes heat stress while providing protection against specified toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) and chemical warfare agents (CWAs). The unmatched breathability of the Gore fabric allows the first responder to remain involved in a mission for longer periods of time without compromising protection.

The Blauer® WZ9430 MIRT Suit is ideal for extended tactical operations where speed, comfort, and durability are crucial, specifically those operations where hazardous chemical and biological agents are anticipated or identified but at levels not immediately dangerous to life and health (below IDLH). Worn with the proper APR gas mask and components, the WZ9430 protects against lower levels of vapor and liquid hazards that may be encountered outside the “hot zone.” The low-profile ensemble allows first responders to operate discretely in civilian populations, while maintaining a ready posture for terrorist incidents. By donning the hidden hood, approved APR gas mask, and gloves, first responders can go from discrete to deployed in a matter of minutes.
